This diminutive humpback trunk belongs to a collector from Middlesex County. He has an extensive collection of various trunks, most of which are in good original condition. The leather handles are missing, and it appears never to have had an interior tray. It is 16 inches wide, 12 inches high, and 10 inches deep. The finish is good, but the lock is missing. The paper lining on the inside is in excellent condition.

This Aladdin oil lamp was purchased on December 20, 1920, by the grandfather of a local lady. Remarkably, it has survived with all of its original parts, including the 27-page instruction booklet that gives detailed information on caring for the lamp. The back page of the booklet has the warranty made out in the purchaser’s name.

A gentleman formerly from Alexandria, now living in the Middle Peninsula, recently purchased this handmade toolbox. The wood is pine, and the interior tray is intact. The interior shows signs of good wear over a long period of time. The hardware is original. On the lid is a small brass plaque with the maker’s name and address.  Interestingly, it has the earlier telephone letter exchange, rather than the later numerical one.
