      Has the potential of being a Martin Maier but with out a back photo we'll never know for sure. You should correct your front view and turn it right side up and insert a back view as well right side up.. I picked one up couple of weeks ago just like it.
      Nice looking trunk so far!!

      Mr. Taylor held many of the patents for this trunk.
      Mr. Sessions foundry supplied many of the castings to the trunk industry.
