    I inherited this large steamer trunk from an aunt of mine who had been lugging it around for some time. I originally took it to be a unique side table in my house but I'm curious if anyone recognizes the labels/style and have any idea what it might be worth (if anything). It is meant to stand vertically.

    I was struggling to open it myself to take pictures, but inside are drawers, hangers with a hanging rod, and I believe a jewelry box in the top (possibly a mirror as well). Bottom has all-direction roller wheels. I've included a picture of all the labels on it I could find. Someone did also paint or have painted on their initials as well.

    Measures 40.5" tall, 22" wide, 22" deep. Very heavy!

    Top is slightly domed, not flat.
