condition: excellent
I have an outstanding antique humpback truck for sale. It is unusual because it has brown and mustard colored stripes. This heavy canvas fabric is coated with amber shellac, giving it a beautiful finish. It has wood banding that is in excellent condition. All of the leather strapping and hardware is intact.

The inside of the trunk is really something. There is a dome top insert with leather straps that has two compartments. One is for a hat, and there is a built-in stand for that! The little buckles that hold the straps together aren't in the best of shape. I don't fasten them.

Underneath this insert is a flat tray with open webbing for flat storage. This allows for air circulation.

Underneath the webbed insert is the main storage compartment. Everything fits snugly. All of the inserts are in excellent condition.

There is also an envelope-like storage area underneath the dome top. The manufacturers label is just below. It reads “J. H. Barth Trunks, Traveling Bags, Pocket Books, Etc. 110 Wisconsin Street, 331 Third Street Milwaukee, Wis.” There is a decorative paper band around the envelope and the outer edges inside the dome.

The trunk measures 32 inches long, 19 inches wide and 24 ½ inches tall. It rolls on four tiny wheels on the bottom.

The big front lock closes, but I don't have a key to lock it. The back of the truck is also completely finished.
