My neighbor has this antique trunk. The person she got it from told her that it was used during the Civil War to store guns. It is very heavy so we think it is solid wood. We know it was made in the 1800s.
We have tried to research it a little bit and have found many trunks but not one that looks like this or that has been used for this purpose. We even contacted a person who specializes in antique trunks but he said he has never seen one.
At this point we are not sure if maybe the story she was told is incorrect or if she has a rare trunk.
Can you help?
