1940s USA Shipping Steamer Trunk Chest / White Star Line

  • 1940s American Shipping Trunk
  • With White Star Shipping label
  • Black with Brown Metal Studded Finishing Strip
  • The trunk is sturdy and strong.
  • It looks to be made from layers of strong card rather than wood. It is held together with black metal bands and metal brackets at the corners.
  • Handles are strong leather with metal brackets. The front lock is missing its key section I believe.
  • The lid holds up on its own with the side bracket inside the lid.
  • Inside is clean, with original paper covering, in good condition.
  • The outside of the bottom of the trunk is a little more worn than the rest – including a rip to the brown finishing strip ( rip shown in last gallery photo ).
  • White Star shipping label on the side of the trunk.
  • You can just make out on the shipping label ‘Elizabeth Bakke’ which was a ship travelling from New York to Liverpool regularly in the 1940s, during the Second World War.
  • The ship continued to be in use after the war but the voyages don’t seem to be from / to New York, so the label is quite possible from a journey made in the early 1940s.
  • You can search for details of the voyages of the ‘Elizabeth Bakke’ online for more details.
  • Excelsior/ USA marked lock.
  • The trunk has been cleaned and polished, and shines beautifully !
  • Lots of the brackets and rivets are rusty – Lots of marks on the surface.
  • Everything has been cleaned and waxed ( except the labels).
