    I would like to know what this is? I have seen cabin trunks but this seems to be too big and I would like to know what it was made for.

    It measures 51.5 cm (20.25 inches) cubed.

    Engraving on lock states "Eagle Lock Co Terryville Conn USA"

    Plate on front says "Innovation Trademark"

    Inside there is a removable basket with lid and another lidded section in the roof of the box which is held up with poppered straps.

    The frame is metal and the panels are wood?

    It has been hideously painted!

    Unsolved Mystery

      Pretty much looks like a hat trunk -- others more versed in this area should confirm. Innovation made good quality trunks -- I think they are a French company. To have all the inserts in tact like this is pretty nice. The paint can be taken off to restore its original look. Thanks for the post!
