This trunk was found in Maryland (a 3 1/2 hr drive one way,proving my insanity BB2).It is in rough shape, most say I'm crazy to drive so far(but I love a challenge.Best $50.00 I ever spent. I have not seen this manufacturers sticker before.This trunk is now known as the Beast. As it is 36" long 23"wide 33" to the apex of the side. 36" to the apex of the dome. It has scalloped Sessions hardware on the Hardwood slats,4 heavy duty hinges,It is currently missing a few pieces of hardware but When complete it will have 112 peices cast pieces.I'll count the nails later.It has a Fancy Interior tray 3/4 complete with all the bells and whistles,lithographs,latches,clasps inherent in a bridal trunk description (thank you Jim.) It has some unique metal and nail work done under the slat clamps. The leather is in bad shape and crumbles to the touch.(T-man
I'll see what I can salvage for you.)
I have another large cross slat that I posted a while ago that could fit inside
this one.I have my work cut out for me,I"ll post more pics of hardware.And do some research .
