    Was lucky to find this, I believe rare, Clinton Wall " Space Saver " Streamer trunk. It's dated March 1890.
    Let me know what you think.

      Above: Some strange and funny history about the Clinton wall trunk company. Wall trunks were made by the thousands so I would not say rare, but they are not as prevalent as other ordinary trunks.The one you posted seems to be in solid condition. .

      Nice one Mike!! Nice job as well...Looks great!! Its great to find a trunk out of the realm of the norm, be it flat top or barrel top. I picked up a flat top this morning that I will post soon which I have yet to have seen until today. Again excellent Job on the trunk!

      Very nice Mike! Over my 6 years of collecting I’ve only come across one Clinton Wall Trunk... so not many around up this way. This is a nice example.
