The trunk was bought from an antique store in Clinton, TN but nothing was known about the piece. It has either a name or brand on the top left that reads E.BAETENS and underneath that DETR and other letters that cannot be made out. On the back hinges it says PAT JULY 1485 and on the left side it says something like PATAP PLO FOR. Again, that may be way off put its as close as I could get to what it says. Inside the trunk has what seems to be a sticker with a little girl holding a bouquet of flowers with a St. Brenard dog behind her. There is another piece that has a sticker of red, white, and pink roses. The lock is a pad lock with a skeleton key insert, the lock reads Corbin Cabinet Lock Company, New Britain, Conn. I am not sure if the piece has history or anything I would just like to hear what a professional knows about the piece. Thank you very much.
