This trunk was found in a barn in Kalamazoo, Michigan. History unknown, manufacturer unknown. It's not like other wardrobe trunks I've seen - it's small and light, it doesn't hinge open, there's no shoebox and no drawers, and that funky accessory bag in pic #3 seems unique as well.
I think its outer case is aluminum - badly gouged in some places - and it looks like all the edges were covered in a very fine leather that was painted silver. I thought it was all rust at first until I took a closer look.
I'm surprised there's NO manufacturer info anywhere on this trunk. Does it look familiar at all to anyone? I'm guessing maybe 1930s, based on similar suitcases I've seen..
