Antique Satinwood Trunk. From Sri Lanka or Ceylon in those days – this mid 19th century satinwood trunk is of excellent quality. The second wood employed is macassar ebony. Very decorative brass backplates to the large carrying handles at each end. Decorative external hinges to the back and very large escutcheon with key at the front. The inside is clean – probably used to transport linen aboard ship and there is a candle box.
