I bought this beautiful Travel Trunk/Chest in an auction over 12 years ago.
It measures Height: 25" Depth: 18" Length: 33".
I loved the design and the interior looked original, I also liked the fact it had the original lock which was stamped Eagle Lock Co. Terryville. CT, Pat. Dec. 4. 1877. lower was etched A 10 which I presumed was the key code. I have misplaced the key and I want to buy another so can anyone tell me where I can buy a replacement key. Another interesting thing which was really nice was when I looked inside the hat box there was an immaculate ladies white silk hat with a blue bow still in the hat box.
Would the covering on the trunk/chest be Alligator skin or embossed leather?
Would the trunk/chest have been made before the Pat. date on the lock or after?
