Past Due Tuesday Post-steamer trunk

If this trunk could talk....what would it say?? Where has it been, what has it experienced....that is precisely why I love antiques, they have such a story to tell and their charm lies in their history. This steamer trunk is one of two matching trunks from this same time period, I'm guessing the turn of the Century but I don't know, all I know is it's wonderfully aged (like me!! ). I looked on ebay at the various trunks people are selling and one just like this was going for $300.00 I sell my merchandise MUCH cheaper, I have this priced at $135.00 and if anyone is interested let me know. Until then it will grace my studio with it's good vibes and it will whisper it's tales of adventure traveling on the Titanic, the Hindenburg and the first Pan Am flight.


  1. Didn't know you were such a great story teller! It looks like a great trunk--got any junk in there?!?!?!? Your little shop is looking better all the time!

  2. What a great piece, love the texture on the side and the shape of the top. Thanks for sharing in Past Due Tuesday!

  3. Just think of all the corsets and bustles that could have held! And how the porters had to carry it onboard.
    And you have two of them, wow. Great find!

  4. Who knows where this trunk has been. That's the wonderful part of "old things" Wouldn't it be amazing if they could tell their stories to us. Sometimes a date, an address, a label or something written inside will help us understand some of their mysteries. But in the end..., I think it's the beauty and look of it that draws us to these things.
    Or..., Maybe the lingering thoughts of someone who touched this trunk, and used it, is trying to tell you something. Maybe it WAS on the Titanic. Maybe it floated away from the ship and saved someone's life. Maybe it did....
