    I wanted something interesting to store our wedding memories in and I found this old steamer trunk. The only thing I can identify is the Eagle lock, and part of a label. Can anyone help me date this?

      Wardrobe trunks were made from the early 1900's thru the 1930's and beyond here are some links to some advertising from the 1920's there were many manufacturers. hope this helps a bit.
