My niece gave me this trunk and I am restoring it.
I found some markings on the bottom part on the back part of the lid and the same markings on the top rim on the back of the trunk. They are XX IIII Pictures attached.
Does anyone have any idea of age? Have you ever seen the markings before, what do they refer to?
It was covered with leather which I am going to replace as closely as possible and reuse as much of the original parts as possible.
The trunk is 26 1/2" long . 13 1/2" tall from bottom to top of lid. 14" wide at the width section on bottom
I just added 2 new pics of how far I am on my restoring. I am ready to put on the metal strips and gold buttons.
