Another one of my child sized antique trunks. Not sure of the age of this one, but sometime in the mid to late 1800's.
Most of the brass buttons are original to the trunk. A few were missing and I had no other option but to replace them (only about 5 though).
Check out the bottom of this one. It has the name of the transfer company and its' to and from destination written in grease paint ( Stearns and Glossert Co. Via Humbolt and Troy Junction, NEB). I've never seen anything like that before. I thought that was great that the writing is still there.
I still have this one. My wife keeps boxes of photographs in it.
Thanks for looking!!
