I just picked this up in a little resale shop that normally I would have driven past taking a bypass. However I felt like driving through old tiny towns, and found this treasure. I thought oh my goodness what am I doing? But I love it, I like the crackled canvas covering most of all. I love that it was made here in Oregon as well. It's made with the 3 layered veneer fir. Although the lock is gone everything else is in tact, even the leather handles. The covering is canvas with, I presume a shellac that has crackled over time as there are some larger flat places in back. Or it was made to be that way. It's still very much intact. I won't be removing it as I really enjoy the look of it. The lid closes perfectly snug, and opens up to the secrets inside, where among newspaper clippings I found an old stamp from 1915. Double score since I collect stamps! So here are the measurements: 2ft. 8in. tall, 3ft. long, & 1ft. wide, made by Multnomah Baggage and Trunk Co. It makes a statement in the room. I love it, I hope you guys do too!
