Vintage Doll Trunk

Isn't this the best old doll trunk? This is the perfect display piece! The metal trunk is wonderfully battered with bent "dings" on the case, and sporting steamer trunk travel decals. The trunk also came with visions of the doll and dresses that must have lived inside the trunk.
 I remember receiving, one Christmas, a white leatherette trunk comeplete with a bride doll wearing a  satin and lace wedding gown made from fabrics from my cousin's wedding dress. We had been in her wedding, in the summer, and our Mother had managed to gather fabrics from the wedding and make a wedding gown for a "much-coveted" doll that we hoped Santa would deliver.  This trunk will be displayed in the parlor, filled with ribbons, until it finds a new home via Etsy!
