I have up for sale a wonderful vintage original circa late 1800s to early 1900s Flat Top Trunk with name tag Mandel Brothers - Chicago , which I believe was a department store not the manufacturer.   Its in great shape, much nicer than what you normally find when it comes to antique trunks. It has oak or ask slats and brownish colored canvas covering.  The finish on the slats is excellent and the canvas is in really nice shape as well. Not that there isn't any wear ,its that the wear is very light. 

It measures roughly 35-1/2" wide, 20-1/2" deep, and 22" tall  - weighs approx 49 lbs as you see it. These are obviously outside measurements.  Comes with the inner tray/ box  - the right side is missing the lid. 

The trunk is super clean , all original , and is Estate Fresh. It must have been stored in a dry area as the bottom is in fantastic shape with no rust to speak of. It does not have any castors or rollers, it was made without them - was meant to simply slide on the metal parts of the base. 


Even though you see a calculated price for shipping there are a few possibly cheaper alternatives for shipment depending on where you live. FOR SHIPPING QUOTES PLEASE MESSAGE ME OR CALL ME AT 1-866-986-3738 Toll Free. Include your name and Full address - if your address is residential or commercial. Commercial is always a bit cheaper when using FedEx.    Greyhound is probably the cheapest but they do not do door to door delivery , rather station to station . Meaning you would have to pick up the parcel as the nearest Greyhound Package Express location to your address. 

I special order double wall boxes for items such as this, it usually takes between 2 & 4 business days and then another day to package. 

UPON RECEIVING THE ITEM - ONLY THROW OUT THE BOX AND PACKAGING AFTER YOU HAVE INSPECTED THE ITEM AND ARE HAPPY THAT THERE ARE NO DAMAGES.

IN THE RARE EVENT YOU RECEIVED THE ITEM AND IT IS DAMAGED  -CONTACT ME ASAP -  KEEP THE BOX AND ALL PACKAGING MATERIALS JUST AS THE ITEM ARRIVED AS THEY WOULD BE NEEDED TO HELP PROCESS THE INSURANCE CLAIM.  YOU WOULD BE REQUIRED TO HELP WITH THE INSURANCE CLAIM . SAVE THE BOX AND ALL PACKAGING , YOU WOULD NEED PICS OF THE OUTER BOX AND INNER BOX , AND PICS OF THE DAMAGED ITEM. WITHOUT THESE PICS, YOU WILL NOT GET A REFUND IF I CAN NOT PROCESS THE CLAIM - YOUR HELP IS REQUIRED. THIS IS PART OF YOUR RESPONSIBILITY WHEN IT COMES TO DAMAGE. I PACKAGE TO THE VERY BEST OF MY ABILITIES BUT SOMETIMES THINGS HAPPEN THAT ARE OUT OF OUR CONTROL. I hold the right to ship in an alternative method of shipping if I deem it more safe because of the items fragility , issues due to size, etc.
