Picked up this Martin Maier Steel Bound Roll top Trunk last week the same time as the JC trunk I just posted. Measures in at 36L x 22D x 24 Tall. It doesn't have all the typical bells and whistle hardware. Quite frankly it has no typical MM hardware, much to my surprise. The wall construction is no thicker than the interior tray wall value itself so pretty thin. Has a cheap excelsior Lock. This trunk was 30 bucks & 20 minutes from home and I basically got it for the name plate, as the remaining hardware pieces are common. I am showing it just for the sake of showing that Martin Maier isn't always attributed with fancy and iron hardware. The interior is painted BLAAAA.. but you can see that there is a label on the top inside painted over, so curious to see whats under that come summer. Please forgive my photos as it was melting outside and my lens I guess was foggy. I was told MM was still in operation until 1921 so pretty sure this is one from the tail end or leading up to closing.
