We are delighted to offer for auction 1 of 4 stunning Antique circa 1850 distressed ships steamer trunks

This auction is for the one piece, the other three which are progressive in size are listed under my other items and not included in this auction

The locks are supplied by J.Bates of Wolverhampton, if you do a little research you will see they were pretty much the best of their era

The condition of each piece is exactly right for the period era and usage, think how many sea crossings they have seen

They make lovely signature pieces for the house, keep shoes in the porch, toys in the living room, some use them as foot rests others as coffee tables and so on

We have cleaned waxed and polished them, they are ready for a new life!

Your invoice will be sent with zero balance in the delivery section, this is because all delivery fees are paid directly to the courier company to keep your costs down, if we charge you through ebay we have to add ebay and paypal fees, vat and other taxes to make sure the courier company are paid the exact amount they charge

Whoever delivers will usually require some help on the larger items to unload, if this is not possible please let us know as it will affect the price to send a two man team

Delivery is to the ground floor only, again if you need help upstairs or in flats etc that's absolutely not a problem, the couriers charge £10 per flight per man per item, if you have a working elevator then naturally there’s no additional fee
