condition: fair
Antique Jenny Lind Stage Coach Trunk Luggage Chest aka "Breadloaf Trunk"
c.1860s
Rare find with almost all hardware present - original brass lock with a key, brass spring loaded latches, a miniature lock with a key to the envelope compartment, etc.

Original fabric lining is all there, with various age-related issues. Elaborate interior featuring an extra copartment and an envelope with a lock and ky. Intricate etched gold-leaf design applied over red velvet is also intact. The leather has beautifully tooled design.

A very old travel sticker is partially attached to the side of the trunk.

There are plenty of issues to the trunk, as shown. One handle is missing, some hardware is boken, brass buttons are missing, leather is dry rotted and split in some areas and separated from the wood base, bottom is worn out, the top is misaligned, etc. There's a strong old odor.
All things considered, it's still an awesome trunk that's hard to come by. Got it for myself to restore but realized I won't do it justice.

Pick up in Goshen NY
