Picked up this trunk several weeks ago, shown as found. There are two different types of wood in alternating narrow strips. It has the original interior tray and sellers label on the inside both are usually missing.. J R Harlacher Harness Trunks and Bags Dayton OH is the interior label. Trunk is approximately 28 by 19 and 22 high. Can't read the patent date on the hinges, they are the style that hold the lid from going past a 90 degree angle. Not sure if the label inside was the trunk maker, this looks like a Martin Maier style. Wood shows some wear but nothing to bad. I'm looking forward to warmer weather so I can get outside and sand and clean this one up. This will be added to my collection, no room but will find room for this beautiful trunk someplace. Trying to find out if this is a Martin Maier hoping the trunk experts on this site can help with that.
