    Just got this one home, saw it last night on Craigslist, have been looking for one for a while that didn't cost an arm and a leg, most call these trunks bevel top but they were actually called octagon top, the trunk is 28 inches wide, 22 inches tall and 18 inches deep, made by Martin Maier probably early to mid 1880's. The trunk has its tray which is always a plus, I will rebuild it with doors and lids, over all in good shape, at 28 inches I think this was the smallest they made in this style, hope you like it, greendog.
