I stumbled across this site and I'm so glad i did!
I found this trunk at our swap shop at the local dump with the immediate idea of chalk painting it. After finding this site I'm curious what people think... From what I've read, I think it's embossed metal (zinc) that was later painted blue. I peeled off contact paper that someone had applied to the inside. Latch says patd oct 28 1868. I wasn't able to find any labels or company markings.
Thanks for any input!
