I bought this great old trunk yesterday. Research has it coming up as a Georg Schalk oak banded trunk, but I haven't been able to find any further information. It measures 21 x 40 x 11. The top pieces to the locks have an engraved P surrounded by a starburst and a little strangely shaped box underneath with the capital letters DEP inside it. Does anyone know if those engraved letters indicate a manufacture?
The trunk has two travel labels on it from Freiburg/Brsg. To Chatham, New Jersey via New York.
If anyone has any information about this trunk or the manufacture, I would love to learn more about it.
