Ship Salvage:

all of these trunks are salvaged and most are from the time during the British Raj when Great Britain occupied India (1850s - 1940s) - they stored passengers' personal valuables during ocean transit
These are one-of-a-kind pieces; we only get 1 or 2 in each batch of salvage every 7-9 months. 

Available pieces will read "available" under the photo; otherwise, they have been sold.
Sold pieces remain pictured to show the diverse types and styles of trunks we have carried in the past.
