Antique Travel Trunks

Travel trunks have been in use as luggage on long journeys no matter whether they might have been over land, by sea or in the air. These trunks come in many different forms to cater for the various needs of the weary traveller. Larger steamer trunks can hold enough clothes and other belongings to last for many months, a necessity in the days where long journeys covered such a period of time.

In more recent times antique travel trunks have been used in more of a decorative nature as older trunks are being recovered and then restored to end up as feature pieces put on display in the home.

You might find that the interior of most travel trunks provide you with a great deal of space that allows plenty of room for the storage of clothing and other belongings. Wardrobe trunks are a little different with some of them providing drawers in part of the trunk for the orderly storage of smaller items.

What you might quickly pick up on is just how large and heavy some of the older travel trunks are. Considering these trunks were meant to be moved around on a regular basis one can only feel sorry for those who were charged with the responsibility of doing the actual lugging. The sturdiness of these trunks should be a reassurance to those who are looking to buy one because there is a very good chance that this means the trunk will have withstood the ravages of time very well.
