inches deep. An eye catching antique storage trunk for your vintage d├ęcor.
The style and design of this trunk is consistent with a Saratoga trunk. This design of trunks were known as Saratoga trunks because in the 1800s Saratoga, New York, was a popular place for wealthier people to go and relax. Folks vacationing at this location wanted a trunk that showcased the affluence and extravagance of the owners. Saratoga trunks had round tops and were covered in leather, metal, or canvas and also had decorative hardware.
