I had posted this trunk several years back and removed it as I was going to sell it... changed my mind but forgot it was no longer with my collection on this site. The owner of this trunk had inherited furniture from France and had a container of beautiful pieces shipped to him in Canada -- wow some of the gorgeous furniture -- well this was a part of the shipment and his story was that his family had acquired it from a hotel in France as there were often no closets in the old hotels just these lovely trunks. It's all leather with brass studs as you can see -- the lock appear to be handmade, odd thing is they are exactly the same but two different sizes... The nails, particularly the top left appear to be rose head. hard to confirm a date so I'm speculating on this...
