Antique Bentwood & Banded Railway Steam Trunk

The trunk is reinforced with bentwood banding, a technique that became popular in the 19th century for strengthening and adding an aesthetic appeal to travel trunks. The bentwood is steam-bent, a process where wood is steamed to make it pliable before being shaped into curves. This method adds durability and a unique look, which was fashionable during the period.

The trunk is clearly well-traveled, as evidenced by the wear on the wood and the metal components, which adds to its charm.
