Many of the Harris Family children were educated outside the home. In the third generation, George and Lucy’s children; Milly, Ronald, and Teddy, were educated in England. This trunk belonged to Teddy as a boy and was taken with him across the Atlantic. It is a simple box, made of leather and brass fastenings. The trunk comes with a small skeleton key.
