I got a kick out of this CL listing

Thought y'all would, also!

Is it an antique, or 20 years old? Good condition or NOT! The seller can't seem to make up his mind. lol

Too me, it looks older than 20. In fact, it looks a lot like the trunk that I have - minus the legs - that went through the Gold Rush with distant relatives. Missing hinges and all!

Care to guess the age?

Here is a link that might be useful: CL Antique Trunk

The seller must have seen your post because the listing has been deleted! LOL!

Oh dern! They either sold it, or someone wrote them to say that they should rethink selling it for the amount they were. They were not asking much, and I feel sure it was worth more than they wanted. It really was charming and looked much older than 20 years. Said it was his wife's when she was a little girl.

Here is a terrible photo of mine...just add feet to get a visual.

Thanks! Unfortunately, the straps and key escutcheon are missing, and then there's the missing hinges and a split in the back.
