    This trunk is from family homestead believed to be from mid to late 1800s. Registered trademark of gold medallion depicting 3 elephants trunks holding three steamer trunks. Anyone recognize trademark or able to establish age?

      Hi there, and Welcome. I have that label on a trunk of mine == https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/208078-langmuir-metal-suitcase-luggage-trunk

      M. Langmuir was the largest trunk manufacturer in Canada and was in business from 1890 until 1960

      Wonderful flat top packing trunk!! This would be more like the late 1800's. I have several flat top trunks like this in my collection, but not one by this maker. Great family piece!
      Nice work on solving this mystery Rose!!!
