This is a very cool trunk that I picked up yesterday, I have been watching for one for a while and have seen two or three of them in the last couple months, but they have been to far away or to much money, This one was 20 min. away, the other ones I seen only had the X slats on the top and were tin covered, this one has the X slats on all five sides and is covered in leather. it has some issues but nothing I can't fix, I also know that this design was patented in 1884 by John Duguid, now, the label that is in this trunk has F. Eggeman only, and the label is in the shape a trunk that looks just like the one I'm showing, I have seen wall trunk labels with both Eggeman & Duguid, so they must have went in to business together at some point. the trunk is 34 inches wide, 28 inches at the peak and 20 inches deep, The interior is there but is in bad shape, I will show it, hope you like, greendog.
