      A link to a Hasp patent that may apply:

      https://patentimages.storage.googleapis.com/pages/US1503462-0.png

      The outside skin of the trunk is made of vulcanized fibre.Vu-Cot Fibre is one of the makers of the material that comes to mind. As for the trunk Manufacturer, there were many makers of this style of trunk during the 1920s thru to the 195os or so. Without a makers label hard to say exactly.

      A Link to an awesome History of Excelsior hardware company.One of the
      major manufacturers of locks and trunk hardware.
      Hope this helps a bit thanks for the post.
