20th C. Painted Wood Trunk Watson's Wild West Show

Lot 0295 Details

Description
North America, United States, ca. early to mid 20th century CE. A large wooden storage trunk with iron handles, hinges, and a lock. While this trunk is painted with "Col. EB Watson's Wild West Show" we are not certain that it was used in an actual Wild West performance; rather, it may have been a prop for a movie or a theme park. The trunk is painted emerald and dark green and "Hats and Bonnets" is painted on the top. Quite an interesting piece, likely a theatrical prop featured in reenactments of old Wild West shows. Size: 29.875" L x 22.125" W x 23.675" H (75.9 cm x 56.2 cm x 60.1 cm)

Provenance: private Glorieta, New Mexico, USA collection

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids.
