This trunk is for my brother-in-law and it was his mother's, who is deceased. I had no luck in finding any identifying factors. I'm going to restore it, but I'd like to know a little about it first. Aside from the wood slats, the top and front is covered with some sort of tin.
I've never restored a trunk before, but I'm up for the challenge. This one is in pretty rough shape and I'd just like to bring back some of it's beauty.
*****Update*****After removing the rust from the lock, I was able to read the following.....THE H & A LOCK CO, NEW YORK, PAT. DEC 10 1907
