Crystalized tin Dome Top trunk from the late 1890's. I purchased the trunk from a guy selling out of his car for 25.00 along with some other stuff. I had the trunk apprasied and it's insured value is 2000.00 and retail is 1500.00. It is considered good to excellent condition. The original purchase price was 2.50 when it was new. It was owned by someone wealthy because it is a dome top and they purchased these because they would stack them on top so they would not be crushed and would be removed first from the ship or train. I do not know the maker of the trunk but is believed to be made buy 1 of 2 American companies.
