Description

Brass Bound Camphor Trunk – circa 1900 is a very good example of the trunks used in Victorian and Edwardian days to transport linen etc on board ship.  The camphor lining was used to deter moths and other pests for the long journey by sea.  Camphor has a very attractive grain and makes for a very nice looking box.

There are brass carrying handles and the carcass is brass bound for extra strength as well as decoration.  There is a countersunk brass handle for opening the lid.
