This ENGLISH GEORGIAN METAL-BOUND CARRIAGE TRUNK retains its original MAKER'S LABEL to the inside of the lid.
It reads: DRIVER AND EYRE, Trunk, Plate Case, Messenger Box Makers to Their Royal Highnesses The Dukes of Gloucester and Cumberland at The Kings Arms in Cockspur Street and at No 70 Charing Cross, London. This dates the Trunk to between 1798 and 1800.
The TRUNK is finished with close-nailing detail and bears the initials PD to the top of the lid, skilfully-applied in small headed nails.
The inside is lined with newspapers, including The Times dating from Thursday November 12th 1788, which have been decorated with stencilled dots.
There are the obvious signs of wear but this TRUNK is original throughout, including the lock.
