    Disclaimer: I did not coat the hinges with that gaudy gold leaf paint, or perform any of the 'restoration' work on the trunk - smile.

    I hope the hinges help those of you who are helping me identify the manufacturer and where I could get more information and sell the trunk.

    Thanks so much! Rick

      F.W Beckwith hinge patented July 14 1885
      Not a Martin Maier patented hinge.But very nice trunk hardware all the same.
      I have seen this hardware on M.M. Secor and a few other better manufacturers.
      Much luck with it.

      Thank you so very much, Drill!

      So glad I found this site as it is proving to be an invaluable resource as I go through all I inherited from my folks! Rick

      so often on his trunks.

      Here is another rare Martin Maier corner iron and latch patent. Incidentally I have yet to see on any of his trunks pictured on the internet. I have sure searched a bit.So if anyone finds a picture of it please post it and let me know,it wouuld be neat to see.
