A trunk passed down through generations. Unsure of origin/make. Printing on side hard to make out, although definately says "Cleveland" but unsure if OH or IL. Any information or direction on this piece would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    Looks to be a standard cargo or cabin trunk. Often used when traveling on trains as it would fit under the bed. It looks to have leather corners and formerly had leather straps running from back to front where they buckled. Your metal corners look to be brass or brass coated. The leather and corners indicate a good quality trunk.
