Seabrook Canvas Trunk


Maker: Seabrook

Category: Campaign Furniture

Subcategory: Trunks

A large black canvas Trunk by Seabrook with tin straps, studs and iron carrying handles. The edge of the top has a leather lip to help seal the trunk from the weather. The interior has 2 removable trays and a large label for Seabrook of 'No. 5 Corner of St. Pauls next Cheapside, London'. The trunk is painted to the top with the initials. N.J.L. of the owner and No. 1 so it could quickly be established what the trunk contained. The trunk retains its 2 lift out trays and is a good size to go at the foot of a bed or the end of a sofa. It is likely to be from the start of the 19th Century given the label still notes 'Late Clements' which suggests Seabrook was keen to establish his credentials. Early 19th Century.
