Maker: Drew & Sons
A leather Trunk by Drew & Sons of Piccadilly, London.
Made of leather hide, this trunk is unusual for the maker in that Drew Maker is impressed to the side carrying handles. The trunk also has an original leather strap fitted to run under the handles and fix across the width of the trunk, as opposed to running from front to back. This strap is riveted to the underside of the trunk which has wooden runners to raise it from the ground. The interior is lined in canvas and has leather strap hinges to hold the open lid in place.
The trunk is stamped with the name Hatfield to the top. This trunk is a little shorter in width than most. Late 19th Century.
