Freshly picked at an estate sale today, this trunk is being added to a growing collection of my vintage luggage. This is a massive piece, about 28x19x10, all leather and very heavy. It's lined with cotton fabric inside. It's in decent condition for its age, still pretty solid and holding up and functional. The leather trim/lining on the inside has lifted in some areas and i can see remains of a newspaper underneath. Did they use newspaper back in the day to help glue adhere better?
I couldn't find any maker on the piece, only the travel labels all over. Does anyone recognize this type of luggage? I would greatly appreciate some info on the possible age and maker. Thank you as always!
