Large slat trunk made in Fall River MA by the Fall River Trunk Company. There is a small section of the original label on bottom of the trunk. Purchased the trunk a few months ago on CraigsList, bonus it has a key. It isn't as old as the small toy on the right, trunk experts have dated it around late 1890s to 1915, based on the hardware.
It is a large trunk 35 wide and 25 inches tall. First picture is the before, I added my two toy slat trunks for some of the other pictures. I love the look of slat trunks and the beauty of the wood when it is refinished. The interior is missing the tray it does have the compartment in the lid. I haven't done any restoration on the interior yet. I'm excited to be almost done so wanted to post pictures.
There are more before pictures in a post I did about 2 months ago.
