    This is a common style european trunk with birch ribs that have been steamed and molded to fit the body of the trunk. This one seems to be made around 1910. They came in different sizes, this one being the genuine "steamer trunk" size that was allowed inside a cabin on an ocean going vessel. They also made them full sized. Probably made in England. I have one of the full sized ones, and have had a couple of these over the years. Some have placed stubby legs on them to get good height for a coffee table. Hope this helps a bit...
