Antique Whittle Cedarobe Cedar Lined Wardrobe Trunk, Steamer Trunk, Glamping Dresser "Made in Knoxville, Tennesee"

Sorry, this item has sold.

This fabulous "Cedarobe" wardrobe trunk was made by Whittle Trunk & Bag Co. of Knoxville, Tennessee probably in the 1910s to early 1920s. It features an interior lined with cedar as well as cedar wood drawer fronts. The trunk measures 42" X 23" X 23" and is constructed out of wood covered with dark green vulcanized fibre. The latches, corner guards and slides are made of gold-tone metal. It has one leather handle on the top side. The trunk is secured by two flip latches as we do not have a key for the center locking latch (we normally remove the locks on trunks but have left this one on so should you want to get is restored/re-keyed the original lock mechanism is there. The left top panel flips up and is lined with green velvet; the hanger holder bars slide out and there is a 20" X 12" X 3.5" removable storage box that is covered in fabric. Also included are 12 original wooden hangers in various configurations as well as a really cool "W" hanger that moves back and forth along rails in the middle of the left side. The trunk has 5 drawers which are all 21" wide; The bottom drawer is 13" tall; 3 middle drawers are 7" tall and the top drawer is 5.5" tall. Each drawer is constructed out of wood covered with light blue fabric and solid cedar front panels has cedar wood front panels with inlay designs and polished steel pulls. This trunk originally had a metal bar that slid in front of the drawers for transport but that is not included. This well-made wardrobe trunk has some many possibilities--perfect for a glamping tent, guest room, retail display or use your imagination.

This old trunk is in very good vintage condition considering its age and you can tell that it has been well preserved over the years. The exterior has some travel/storage scuffs, scratches, nicks, marks on the exterior fibre covering but no dents or major damage issues. The side panels and back panel are slightly bowed in but that does not effect the structural integrity. The exterior metal hardware brass-tone finish has discolored in spots with a few tiny rust specks here and there. The two flip latches work and the trunk shuts tight--as noted above, no key is included for the center locking latch. The trunk interior is very clean and the cedar wood is in nice shape with only a few discolorations along the bottom corners. The drawer fabric is in overall good shape with some small areas of wear. The cedar drawer fronts have a few nicks, scratches and a couple of small pieces of the inlay veneer have broken off. The interior is free of mold, tobacco or foul odors.

Shipping from United States

I don't know about you but when I order something online, I like to get it get it fast, so It is our policy to ship items as fast as possible. Most items ship within 1-2 business days of a paid order. Items usually ship via USPS or FEDEX Ground. Lighter items usually ship via USPS Priority Mail while heavier items may ship via FEDEX Ground or USPS Parcel Select. If your shipping address is different than your mailing address, please provide us with both so we use the correct one depending upon the carrier.

We take great care in packing items but on rare occasions an item can be damaged in shipping. All items shipped within the USA are automatically insured against damage. If your item arrives damaged contact us within 5 days from the delivery date so we can process a claim/refund.

We are not responsible for items delivered to your home or business that are lost or stolen after delivery has been confirmed. If you would like us to require a signature upon delivery, please let us know prior to ordering and we will add that option for a nominal cost.

We offer combined shipping discounts on most items (see shipping costs on each item). Please note that Etsy handles combined discounts this way: You pay full listed shipping cost on the item with the most expensive shipping cost and then the combined shipping discount applies to additional items (of lesser shipping costs) on your order.

We are happy to ship internationally on most items but realize that heavy and/or bulky items will be very expensive to ship so we may note on an item that international shipping is not available.The most cost-effective means for shipping internationally is by U.S. Postal Service (either First Class or Priority International mail) but tracking is often unavailable for items sent this way. International delivery times vary from country to country. An item may take anywhere from 7 to 30 days and occasionally longer and depends upon customs or local delivery delays. We have shipped many items all over the globe with very few problems, but items can get lost or stolen along the way. Should an item be lost in the mail, we will provide you with a copy of the U.S Customs form which is proof that we sent the item. The international buyer will be responsible for contacting their own country's customs/mail officials to trace a lost item's whereabouts. WE CANNOT GUARANTEE DELIVERY OF ITEMS SHIPPED OUTSIDE THE U.S.A.

Also note that the international buyer is responsible for any duty or customs fees charged by your country.
