    Recently found this trunk at an antique store; can't seem to find any label on it. was hoping to get some more information on it. Does anyone recognize the style or know any of the history?

      Looks like a nice early 1900's dome top trunk. The trim around the bottom I suspect was a later addition and not original to the piece. With no maker's label it will be hard to know who made it as it is a standard type/style of trunk with catalogue ordered parts. Will look nice refinished.

      Typical small cross slat barrel top trunk, more than likley 1890s sometime.Kind of a neat lithograph of what looks to be a fox in the inside lid, the pattern of embossed tin is a flower, acanthus pattern that was quite typical of the time period many manufacturers of this style of trunk. The molding at the bottom was applied after by someone at some point and is not typical of the piece and detracts from its overall value.

      "Warden" T-Mon? Inmate would be more appropriate I think! Maybe patient. LOL! I knew you guys would pounce on this!
