Just acquired this leather covered Romadka trunk (a Western Star) .It has a nice brass lock, embossed metal and all of it’s Romadka patented metal hardware. The leather is not in good shape. It sadly is missing all of it’s interior trays and compartments. These will have to be acquired or made from scratch to pay the right respect to the trunk. It is 34” wide, 27 “high, 22 “deep. Well worth the 4 hrs. Driving to get it. The swivel caster patent date is 1886 ,so it’s-produced no earlier than that. The previous owner was very interested in seeing it refinished instead of just rotting away in a damp garage. Looking forward to bringing it back to a presentable condition. Should be fun .I’ll post pictures when completed.
