Large Overpond Style Travel Steamer Trunk Storage Chest

Dated circa 1950s this Overpond style timber foundation travel trunk makes an excellent storage chest, blanket box or coffee table for the contemporary home. Synonymous with the Australian and transatlantic migrations from Europe, these spacious, sturdy cases were perfect for steamship travel.

This example has been refinished in a chalky deep charcoal with bluish hues and very lightly waxed. All original brass fittings (bearing surface rust) and original leather handles in good strong condition. The interior has been relined in an attractive travel themed, spongable paper depicting hot air balloons and sailing ships. Working clip shut clasps. Does not lock.

Dimensions: 90cm wide x 51cm deep x 51cm high

Provides ample storage space for blankets/linens or toys in a bedroom or as a coffee table in a living room. This listing is for one trunk (another is available under separate listing).

The above range refers to large furniture items. Please ask for an accurate quotation which I can obtain for you via one of the regular and reliable 'man and van services' I use. All items are blanket wrapped and strapped in transit. Costs vary depending on the size of the furniture item and, of course, the distance from my base in Essex. The price range given covers England roughly from Exeter in the West to Leeds in the North. Deliveries beyond this area (Scotland/Wales and Far North) can also be quoted on an individual basis.

Delivery can often be quicker than the estimate above and depends largely on the schedules of the drivers. I ask for a buyer's contact number so that, once collection has been made, the driver can be in touch direct to arrange drop off. Drivers make every effort to arrange a convenient time but a degree of flexibility is required on the part of the buyer. If you have specific date/time limitations please make this known when requesting a price. The delivery fee is payable direct to the courier on arrival.

Most drivers work alone which enables them to offer competitive prices. Help may be required with unloading for bulky/heavy items. Please make sure any large item will fit through narrow doorways/hallways - where access is limited delivery is to kerbside. If, for instance, you live on an upper floor with no lift please make it known as this may affect the quotation.

Smaller items are packaged and sent via national courier service or Royal Mail. Range from £3.95 to £18.95 - price on quotation.

My aim is to get your purchase to you quickly, safely and efficiently at the best possible price.

This item will be shipped from Leigh on Sea, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
