    A little off line of steamer trunks but a Trunk Is a trunk. All original picnic trunk for a Model A Car with complete two tray with tops interior. 29" x 18 X 15 1/2" tall. Unique looking Corbin solid brass lock, with Corbin metal stamped latches. Fold up top and fold down front. Someone has applied the car magazine cut outs from the looks of it. No maker name, but could very well still be underneath the paste images. The exterior is virtually unmarred, with the brownish spot on the top just being a simple piece of paper stuck to the surface and not damage. All corner edging is vulcanize but for the back inside radius corner which is metal. I wish I could know more about it though.
