A lovely 1930s travel trunk made by Pietro Arcelli, an award-winning saddle and suitcase manufacturer from Modena. The trunk is made of wood covered in painted hessian fabric, aged brass fixtures and leather handles. The inside is covered in a cream-coloured paper with the manufacturer's logo visible under the lid. Great as a coffee table or decorative storage!
Found in Modena.
Condition: Good vintage condition consistent with its age and use. The hessian material is worn in places and two of the metal fixtures at the back are missing. The interior paper is a little loose in places but is clean, dry and neat. The inside has been deodorized. One of the ends of the leather handles on the sides has been clipped but is still solid and functional. The trunk is structurally very sound. See detailed images.
