Two maybe barrell stave trunks I believe.
Nice condition, one has brass straps with brass bosses, the other iron straps with star tacks.
Anybody have any clues for me?

    To hazard a guess, they look like ammunition boxes that were pulled along w/ the artillery, and stored the charges and fuse. I have seen something like these before at re-enactments strapped to the rear of a cannon.

    I'll look around and see if I can find something
