    the top measures 42" wide 34" deep and its 24" tall.
    We bought a storage unit and found this beauty inside of it. Pretty big and don't know a good way to value it. Any help is appreciated.

      Looks like it's for a drum. A Tuba? Show inside. Create a second post with 4 more pictures. Looks like it was for the Vaudeville days.
    2. Celiene Celiene, 4 years ago
      Yeah - it was for a horn of some sort.

      Yep! It's a tuba trunk!

      Great square hard to find size "coffee table worthy" trunk. We don't give estimates on value on this site but I can understand problems evaluating as you will not find an exact one to compare with -- but a mid range value compared to similar aged trunks in similar condition but regular sizes. A cruise through local classifieds will help you get an idea.

      Yeah definitely a sweet coffee table size. Inside looks different I'll post in a couple minutes of the inside

      The one on ebay is asking 750. It has several watchers. They are NOT common!
    7. jlroyston, 4 years ago
      Do you think this one is better or the eBay one?
    8. Celiene Celiene, 4 years ago
      Makes sense that these are rare, because there is usually only ONE tuba in a sit down orchestra.
    9. Celiene Celiene, 4 years ago
      Personally - I prefer this one with the stencils on it. It just screams Vaudeville to me. What is the inside like? Are the parts there like the ebay one?
    10. jlroyston, 4 years ago
      insides different then the eBay one I just posted pictures.
    11. Celiene Celiene, 4 years ago
      Oops - the other one in the link is asking 795... THIS one is from a famous horn maker and is fully marked as such.

      What one asks is not necessarily what one will get. e-Bay is often over-priced. RubyLane is three times as bad.
