Presented is a antique iron bound silver storage trunk that was made in England
at the end of the 19th Century by Wilson & Sharp of 139 Princes Street,
Scotland. They were active from 1895 to 1915. The trunk has a dome top and is bound in iron with two iron handles
at each end. It has four trays that are lined with suede with named cutouts for service of 36 place settings of
silver. There is a lower section that is designed to house large serving pieces such as platters and tea and coffee pots.
With the exception of two age cracks it remains in exceptional condition with a nice patina of age.
For the last 35
or more years it has been in a private collection.
APPRAISALS: Two appraisals
were made by certified appraisers as part of an over all insurance appraisal in which this was one of numerous items. The
one in 1984 valued it at approximately $1100.00 and in 1995, a different appraiser assigned a $2200.00 value. Both were accepted
by the insurance carrier.
