Here's my latest addition to my toy or doll trunk collection. (Large trunks are great too, but these are so much easier to find room for!) This is 16" wide and 11" tall. The alligator metal was in nearly mint condition and just needed cleaning and a little finish. The interior paper was really dirty and spotted so I removed it and preserved the original lithograph and trim in the lid. I plan to make a lift out tray for it someday too. I expect this is from the 1890's to 1910's based on the style, lock, etc. I managed to find a key for the lock, which works great. Thanks for looking! Do others out there collect the miniature or doll trunks?
