Anyone who has restored these steamer trunks knows that it truly is a labor of love, every one of them being different and unique.

Many of these antique trunks have dates stamped on them to help determine their age!

Note the two restored Antique Steamer Trunks in the above photos, both are Dome Top, Hump Back or Camel Back models and each is 100 to 150 years old. They are being used as office filing cabinets as they have hanging file folders in them and the lift out trays have all of the staplers, tape dispensors, pens, paper and other items normally used in an office!

Every antique steamer trunk for sale and offered has been painstakingly restored so as to be used in todays contemporary environments and in unique "re-purposed" ways such as replacing a utilitarian filing cabinet with an antique trunk! These restored trunks can easily hold up to 200 hanging file folders, staplers, tape dispenserss, pens, and other office items normally found on a typical desk.

The Pirate's Lair Exclusive!
We all romanticize about the mystique of these antique trunks. The possible owners and travels that each steamer trunk has taken, along with the high level of detailed craftsmanship in the original production of each and every steamer trunk with that individualized character giving both intrinsic and non-intrinsic value.
 
However the truth of the matter is that the majority of these steamer trunks were made towards the middle to end of the 19th century just at the dawning of the industrial revolution here in America when there were no child labor laws or protections. This rare photo clearly illustrates at least 3 generations of owners and workers, ages appearing to range from pre-teen/adolescent, teens/early adult, through middle to old age!
It was a common practice that loyal and productive craftsmen would be allowed to bring their children to work with them to learn a craft, so many of the children in this photograph were more than likely sons of the men shown.
 
Note the adolescent factory workers on top row! Note that there are no women in the photo! This is due to the fact that at that time "proper" women did not work outside of the home, certainly not in a factory. Everybody appears to look pretty stern, having on their arms crossed and "work" faces put on.

Historically Significant Early 1850s to 1860s Pre-Civil War Medium Size "Low Profile" Fully Restored Antique Trunk. A Mid 19th Century Civil War era (1848-1862) fully restored Low Profile antique trunk for sale! The exterior canvas covering was removed in some distant past restoration. The interior has been professiionally covered over with a felt fabric type textile which has images of English and European Medieval Shields, Knights on Horse indicating that this was used for a young boys special toy chest or treasure chest. The exterior reveals beautiful 100+ year old cured and seasoned pine planks used in the construction of this trunk and the natural pine wood patina is a even throughout. Per our custom the entire trunk was scubbed, dried and lightly sanded with a coat of spar varnish applied. A professional sealer was applied to the interior lining giving it new life.

NOTE: Additionally, hand stencilled to the bottom of the trunk is the name: "W.L. Flkins, Akron, Summit Co, Ohio" and two shipping labels. The first label: "Union Line Express from Cleveland Ohio". The second label: "American Express Company, Wells, Butterfield & Co, Proprietors, From SUSP. Bridge, NY". It is this second label which also confirms the date of manufacture/use and makes it historically significant as this shipping label indicates that it was shipped using the newly ca 1850 formed "American Express Company" by both Wells and Butterfield! Wells later started up the Wells Fargo Company when the "American Express" Board of Directors did not want to expand deliveries to California!

Used in Officers Staterooms and Captains Cabins as well as for general storage aboard all decks of the ship. Typically 40"x20"x20" made of 6-plank pine wood with wooden cleats and rope beckets. These sea chests here at The Pirates Lair are the real deal, no reproductions!

What Are Victorian Lithographs? Well, Here is the Answer! You Found It!

Many of our restored antique trunks were decorated with beautifully detailed and colorful Victorian Chomolithographs, or just lithographs for short. During the trunk restoration process we were able to save these lithographs and professionally restore them as well so as to provide many more years of visual pleasure as well as keeping the continued value and monetary appreciation of the trunk. Lithographic technology was developed in the 19th century and the process was extremely labor intensive, but the results were fantastic. Here is a brief description of how these Victorian Chromolithographs were produced:

The chromolithograph process is a planographic (flat surface, as opposed to raised or relief) printing method, which is employed in creating multiple colored prints. The technique involves drawing an image onto a stone or zinc plate with a grease-based crayon.

The stone is then gummed with gum arabic and nitric acid. Then, the stone is inked with oil-based paints and run through a printing press in conjunction with a sheet of paper, which is used to transfer the image onto the paper. Color is added by utilizing a separate stone to draw where the color is to be applied.

It then passes through the printing press with a separate sheet of paper to which it is transferred. If a particular artwork employs a variety of colors, it is not unusual for up to 25 stones to be used in the process. Each piece of paper will run through the printing press for each individual color needed.

Dependent on the detail, care and amount of colors, each print may take skilled workers several months to create. However, the opposite is also true, if the prints do not employ a great number of colors or detail the product may be easily mass produced in a more cost and time effective manner.

Above in detail is an all wood Nautical Domed Steamer Chest with the lid open showing how the chest was refinished so as to hang file folders and store office desk accessories. That distinctive "Titanic", "Master and Commander", or the popular "Pirates of the Caribbean" decor and theme, but no movie reproductions here, only the real thing!

Note the beautiful brown patina that only 130 year old wood can achieve. Truly a work of art, one can only imagine how and where this immigrants Steamer Trunk was used over the years, and who owned it. Now one can be yours, a legacy to be handed down from generation to generation!

To the very right is a close up of a Antique Steamer Chest which can easily be used as an Antique China Chest, Hope Chest or even as Filing or Office Storage Cabinet with green and black metal cladding with oak wood straps. Each and every Sea Chest is unique and no two are the same, probably similar to the journeys that they each have taken over a century and a half of use.
