I got this trunk for a song... well actually the guy who sold it to me was a musician and he made me a cup of coffee and sang me one of his songs... what a treat! Fantastic trunk road trip today -- one hour and half into the country to pick this up at an old farm. I just love the hardware on it -- unique to me. Nice leather covered with two top patches missing.... may borrow from the back for the top. I like to save the leather on these if I can even though I love the wood look when they are done. Look at the size of the lock -- its huge... patent date 1880 on it. I define a bride's trunks as the ones that have these thick heavy side guides on the two lid corners. Trunk people help me out on this. This is going to look soooo nice when its finished... Christmas all over... Now I have to find a good place to hide it... uh I mean display it.
