Description:
Rectangular-shaped wooden trunk covered in black leather with a lock at the front and a leather strap handle on the lid. The leather is secured to the trunk with rows of brass tacks, which outline the trunk’s perimeter. The interior of the trunk is lined with a printed textile ornamented with alternating vertical bands of flowers and leaves and blue and white stripes, with overlaid horizontal bands of scrollwork. The maker’s label is affixed to the underside of the lid, and reads, “JAMES INGRAHAM / MANUFACTURER OF / SADDLES, HARNESS’, TRUNKS, VA- / LISES, &c. &c. &c. / At the old stand on Main Street, opposite the Stone / Block, and three doors west of Stevens’ Hotel. / Vergennes, Vt.” The James Ingraham referenced in the label is probably the same person as the James Ingraham (age: 36; birth place: New York) who is listed as a "Harness Maker" in the 1850 U.S. Federal Census for Vergennes, Vermont. The latter was born October 3, 1813 in Albany, New York, and was the son of James Ingraham and Jemima Killam. He married Sarah Louise Bancroft on April 30, 1839 in Hartford, Connecticut, and died February 20, 1862 in Vergennes, Vermont.
