    Really nice flat tops are hard to come by. It seems the barrel top trunks received most of the nice hardware. i was excited then to see this beauty with so much detail and hardware on it. The hinges at the back and the lift on the sides are very unusual and must be unique to this maker. (Will post a pic of them) Bonus here is that this one has a beautiful label with Fuller Colorado on it. This one goes to my sis for Christmas... getting my family in on the trunk passion...

      Wow, wonderful original condition trunk! Very nice. common misconception about the hardware though. Trunk parts makers like JH Sessions and others offered many different types of hardware that trunk makers could and did choose from. I have a catalog from 1915 showing many different types of hinges & shoulders. CW won't allow us to re-post so I will start a new post with some of the catalog pictures. I would love to see the interior and label on that trunk too!

      Thanks Jim -- I have a pic of the label but it is not so clear -- I have another on my camera to download and hopefully it is better...

      Jim -- you have a beautiful collection of labels on your site - I may have a couple you do not have displayed -- would you be interested if I sent them to you to add to your collection? (or keep on file as you wish)

      Trunkman, This is outstanding!! I love the canvas covered trunks, but they're so incredibly hard to come by in this nice of condition. You have a VERY lucky sis to be receiving such an incredible trunk for Christmas!! I can hardly take my eyes off this one! Just outstanding!
      Merry Christmas to you T-man!!
