Vintage antique army trunk from the 1st world war…

Vintage antique army trunk from the 1st world war.

Has the following faint inscription on the top of the trunk:

TO TRANS OFFICER
GOVERNORS ISLAND
NEW YORK CITY – N.Y
WILLIAM T. BURNS
1ST LT. ASN 0158-009
543 UNION AV
BRONX NEW YORK CITY

A great piece of history – We did some research and found Governors Island was an army post for the United States army from 1783 to 1966.

We also found some information showing William T Burns served in the first world war.

This trunk would make a fantastic addition to anyones home and is full of charcter and history. It is very clean inside and is a very solid well made trunk as you would expect from a trunk designed for a serving officer.

Dimensions: Height 35cm x width 83cm x depth 43cm

All of our vintage antique wooden chests, trunks and blanket boxes are old, often over 100 years old and will therefore show signs of use which we feel add to the character and appeal of the item. They will have knocks and scrapes consistent with age, many of our chests and trunks have sailed the seas and travelled to far continents carrying precious family possessions. We hope this unique chest or trunk will bring you pleasure and will be a centre piece for your home.
