Trunk number 2 of a pair of very cool antique Tuscan trunks with original blue patina and hardware. This trunk was part of the inventory of a Tuscan estate of a noble family and had been used for storage by the household staff.
The trunk is marked with the number 2 most likely for identification and organization. The interior is lined with galvanized metal. This late 19th/ early 20th century trunk has many imperfections as would be expected from a well used utilitarian piece such as this. The worn patina and the blue color are really terrific. Today, this trunk makes a very decorative piece of furniture.
There are 2 of these trunks available online. The other trunk is marked with the number 1. Both of these trunks together make a fantastic coffee table. We’ve included an image of both trunks together in the photo gallery. Trunk number 1 is listed and priced separately.

This trunk was a utilitarian piece used for storage. It has lots of imperfections, scratching, discoloration, dings, etc. On this trunk, some of the nails are exposed a bit too. There is also a patch with the number 4.
All of this, along with the wonderful paint color, gives the trunk unique character.
