Doll/Toy/Salesman Sample Trunk; Needs restoration. Just getting started on it. I'm estimating the age to be circa early 20th century or late 19th. Has stamped steel elbow straps and disks, square nails, looks to be original paper lining and prints. exterior wood slats and metal all look original and in good condition. Having difficulty finding small replacement parts (original or even repros) for one missing disk and elbow strap) but still searching. Saw one similiar on ebay that I may buy for parts. Any ideas on materials for restoring tray lids would be appreciated or any other info on maker and dating would be greatly appreciated.
