Have you ever seen one like this? If so, who is maker (can't seem to locate via google) and what's it worth? Thank you in advance for any information.

    It is a monitor trunk (sometimes called a waterfall); 1880-1910 era. The nice feature that I find about this style is the steam bent slats that run across the top. Usually metal clad, they are easily refinished. I'd suggest a paint that is used for storm doors once you get the rust off.

    If you look at the picture list about 3 months ago, you will see a monitor trunk that I refinshed and posted. I've refinished about 25 trunks and the monitor style is definitely my favorite. Good luck

    Hey Jerry how much is it to refinish? I will try to access picture list to see your work. Thank you!

    Go to the Show and Tell page and page down a bit. There are three of my trunks shown (look for my email address).
