      Hi Tashame3,
      You have a "cross slat" round or barrel top trunk with embossed metal covering. This is a style made by many American trunk makers starting in the mid 1880's and until the 1910's and even until 1920 by a few companies. The front latches were patented in 1882 and used by many companies for 30 years. A lot of trunk makers did put the color lithographed pictures in the lids and those were made by printing companies. The basket weave pattern on the metal is one of several dozen patterns made for trunks. I hope that helps.
