Lots of cast trimming on this one..just the way I like it. Excellent quality working brass lock with key. This was an off the mark attempt by the last owner of restoration and will for sure have to be done properly. Had a tag originally tie to the handle from US customs dated 1896 as shown. It is missing one top center cleat ...have to find one.... but it is for sure, going to be a favorite. Again this one has the oversize corner trims with the only coloration to a trunk having these I could find on a trunk with a makers label, is on drills site, the one he calls the beast. Do you think that this over size trim can be attributed to Abe Foot? Thanks!
