Here is a mid-to-late 1880s Romadka Brothers "Overland" Leather bound, Canvas covered Trunk. Measures 34 L x 22 D x 26 H which is the smallest for this overseas travel trunk. All interior trays being present was nice to find. It has the wheels like you find on a sole leather trunk. Maybe because of the sole leather type edge binding? It has a small water issue on the top in the one spot but it should turn out and be a character mark. It also has monogrammed "Western Glove Co." brass buttons on the little leather compartment straps. The bent wood on this wraps from front to bottom to back in one piece which is different. Lots of nice die-cast trimmings plus the standard patented leaf designed ones. Solid brass Eagle lock with key. The lid stay is a little different then one normally finds.
