    Old trunk I picked up at an auction 15 years ago. No markings I can see besides the inside pictures. When I bought the trunk, it had a few sheets of the NY Tribune from Nov 9, 1921 inside. They are still there. Trunk is in decent shape. The hings on the back needs some new bolts and the leather from one of the handles is weathered away. I would love to know more about this piece.

      Embossed alligator tin, made around late 1880's to 1900 give or take a bit, pretty common trunk made by many trunk makers at the time, with one exception, I have never seen the boat anchor slat clamps before, very cool, without a makers label hard to say who the maker was.

      @greendog thanks for the info. I know that this site is not about assessing worth but just curious if it is worth getting fixed.

      To be honest, its not a trunk that I would buy to restore, its not a highly collectible or worth very much money, that being said if its a trunk that you really like, then I say go for it.

      Looks fine to me as is. Fixing it would cost more than you would get out of it.

      Thanks for the help. One hinge in back is broken so lifting it is a bit wonky BUT I do like it so will probably keep it.

      Never seen the tin anchor slat clamps before, very interesting and nice to see something different. Normally I see these size trunks with all plain metal so the alligator cover is neat to see and looks to be in nice shape from what I can tell.
