Please note the delivery fee listed is just a guide, it covers within the M25 only for the UK and local Europe only for international, if you would like an accurate quote please send me your postcode and I’ll provide you with the exact price

This is a very well made example of a steamer trunk designed for luxury travel on cruise liner ships. This would have been a very expensive piece in its day and the height of sophisticated travel.

This piece has an amazing patination that can only be achieved through honest age and genuine use. The trunk has the original Army & Navy C.L.S plaque at the back which also reads London Bombay Calcutta which is most likely where they had stores at that time

The trunk was owned by CF Bell, as you can see his name has been painted on, this is a campaign trunk so has seem some service hence the condition!

This is a decorators piece and really sets a mood, it can be used laying down as a large coffee table of course which is what most people do, they make great conversation pieces.

If the new owners wish I can have a thick bevelled edge glass top made so its easier to use as a cocktail /coffee table, if that’s something your interested in please contact me for the price

Condition is period and wonderfully patinated, you honestly could ask for a better example
