      I guess your trunk could be called a child's trunk, but I have not seen that term used in the trunk catalogs. It is basically a small trunk. It is a metal covered trunk from around the 1880's. The lock was patented Nov. 30 1869 and was used for another 30 plus years. The inside paper is not original, but i believe the tray is. The outside decoration is not original but it looks good. Hope this helps,
