Cass Toys Trunk – 11.5” X 6” X 7”
T&S Worcester Trunk - 9.5” X 5.5” X 5.25”
For the on-the-go dolly! A set of 2 vintage trunks that are sure to please!
Cass Toys were made in Athol, Massachusetts starting in 1898. This metal over wood trunk has the original leather handles, a working latch and hinges, and several travel labels from all over the world! The corners are reinforced with metal, the interior has a top tray for her smalls which lifts out to reveal a larger area for clothing. The interior is a white and green patterned paper over wood. There are a few rust spots on the outside of the trunk and some staining of the paper in the bottom of the trunk. All to be expected for the age and given that it was a much loved toy.
The T&S Worcester trunk is red and blue metal over wood, the corners, handle, hinges and clasp are brass. The interior is papered in cream with silver stars, there are 3 coat hangers, I believe they may be hand made. The previous owner has jauntily inscribed the name of the traveling doll, “Hiddy” in several places on the interior. There are 2 airline hang tags attached to the handle, I have left these in place as well as a sticker for KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. Overall, these are in very solid condition and offer any number of uses from display to sewing box to their intended use - for dolly!
