I garbage picked this trunk from curbside. I cleaned it up, but wanted to preserve the old character so just stabilized it and repaired the inner tray. It is covered in black metal, the slats appear to be oak. I'm not sure what kind of metal the fittings are. There are no makers markings on the trunk anywhere. The inside of the trunk is lined in paper, which was tiny sprigs, sort of floral like in blue on a white background. The top of the inner tray also once had a gray canvas-like cover. Can anyone tell me the approximate age of this trunk? I don't intend to sell it, I'm just curious.
