    I found this while searching for antiques. In rough shape but wondering if anyone knows the possible age?

      Looks like you found an antique while searching for antiques. Does it have inserts. Can you post pictures of the inside? You can post 4 pictures per post.

      This style and type of trunk began to mark the end of the halcyon days of the traveling trunk. Lighter suitcases where coming into vogue and of course the dawn of air travel was breaking. After the 30's to 40's trunks began to be for storage only made mostly of metal or vulcanized fiber and the pine bodies ones with the nice hardwood slats began to abate. Then came the ubiquitous blue trunks that are still available today...
