      What a beauty!! One thing about the French trunk makers is that they seemed to use much higher quality brass hardware than the American trunk makers. Is this just my imagination or a fact?

      Thanks !Lot of polishing,That seems to be the case.I remember reading somewhere that they used a different plating process that was much better.During the height of the industrial revolutionThey were only producing something like
      100,000 per year out of whole the country of France. As opposed to 800,000 a year just out of M. M. Secor in America alone.Thus the rarity.Thus my interest.
