    My husband and I found this trunk today at a thrift store. We don't know anything about it other than it has a Corbin lock, is paper covered and had leather straps.

      You have a lovely standard flat-top trunk from the early 1900's. This style of trunk is very practical and lends itself well to refinishing. Finding a key to any trunk is a rare event so congrats on this find! There were many trunk makers at the time making this style of trunk so without a label you will be hard pressed to identify a maker. Hope this helps a bit and welcome to Collectors Weekly!

      Thank you so much!!! This does help! We paid $22 for this trunk. Hopefully we got a good deal and we did find the key to it!
