This is my first refurbish. I did it for my daughter, she picked the color.
I know it is a very large monitor trunk,(34" long x 19" wide x 17" deep) the first picture was how i found it. Under about 3 coats of brown paint was a great deal of rust. Lots of polishing and elbow grease, but finally got it in fair shape. I know the value is not a great sum, but she wouldn't trade it for anything. Finished the inside bottom in cedar.
My main question is about the maker. On the bottom was a small paper stamp. Had the letters buff then it was torn , next was the word size, torn again and then the number either 23 or 53. I think it must be the Buffalo Trunk Company, but I've learned they had a factory in Buffalo and then sold out or moved to Delaware. Anybody offer me some help?
Would also like to find a key.
i can't really make out the name of the lock maker, but may be corbin, found that on the inside of the lock. should i look elsewhere?
