Made of leather on camphor wood with brass corners and stud decoration, this China Trade Trunk also has a later lift out tray. The very dark green blue leather, probably started life as a lighter colour but has darkened with age. The owner's initials of M.E.D. are painted neatly in white to the top. The height makes this trunk very practical for use as a coffee table or at the end of bed for storage. Early to mid 19th Century.
