I've been looking for an old trunk (just because I like the way they look) to store some things in the attic. Found this one on craigslist.com for a very reasonable price and bought it. I had found a trunk restoration website and once obtaining the trunk I submitted these (and more) photos to the trunk restoration manager there for identification. Although the person did not identify the maker of the trunk, they did say they felt this trunk was pre-civil war and had already been redone. Originally, I was informed, this trunk had a outer paper covering with geometic designs on it. Do any trunk experts know anything else about this piece that might be of interest? I think it is beautiful and now wonder if it should be used for storage in the attic or left out for others to enjoy.
