    I would like to find information on the age of this trunk and any pictures I might find that would help me restore this trunk. I purchased it last week at an auction for 40 dollars and it was filthy but sturdy. It is approximately 30 inches long and 17.5 inches deep. It has two locks (Long Lock 7201) and metal band reinforcements. The interior has been papered and is faded and in bad condition. When I was cleaning the inside, the paper began to peel and I took the enclosed picture of the stripe underneath, which appears to be painted on.

    Thanks for any help.
