    The only history that I have on this trunk is that I got it from my mom. It is covered in a very thin metal that obviously looks like wood. Has rollers on the bottom. I want to somewhat restore it to it's original condition, by replacing broken or missing pieces. There seem to be medallions that are missing in places. Hinges are broken. Inside of trunk needs repair and possibly repapering??? There is a "shelf" that sits in the top of the trunk. If possible, I'd like a picture of the trunk in it's original condition so that I know how to restore it. Measures approx 30" long, 16" deep and 18" tall.

    Unsolved Mystery

    Help us close this case. Add your knowledge below.
