In fabulously time worn paint are this pair of 19th century traveling trunks belonging to Lt Colonel Jouinot of the French Army.  The  paint is just wonderful, time worn and with the original writing on each case.   With the original red lining these trunks were meant for traveling; one has the original metal hoops so this could be fastened securely onto the back of a wagon. With the original paint one would have been nice, a pair is just rather special.
