I recently acquired this trunk from my 91 year old friend! She travelled with it when she was young and lived in India and Hong Kong so it could be possible that it was purchased there.
Can anyone help me to identify what it is made from- it looks like alligator skin to me but I'm not sure.
I cannot find a makers name. It has a lift out lined tray which sit on four steel corners. The key has Corbin marked on it with TTF 3 on the reverse.
As you can see there is quite a lot of damage to the leather. Should I repair/dye this or would it de value it?
Any help or advice would be kindly appreciated.
