Here's another ornate flat top from the 1890's I picked up today. This one is covered in canvas which I prefer for sure over the metal, as I like the wood look on this type. The paint is thin and looks to have been done eons ago, and is actually very good condition dings and dent wise. Lots of cast iron hardware with extra details to the top ends, but lacks the slats center medallions. Has an S imprinted on the front bottom slat clamps. I have only one trunk, The burgundy Round Top Saratoga Trunk, that features the other slat clamps which has the initials S B T C stamped on them, these one's on this trunk are blank as far as initials go. Measures in at 32" L x 19" D x 23" Tall. No maker label, linen interior & missing original tray & the top is gutted to a point. It has the hole and marks from the top tray catch which held the tray in the lid when opened and the pivot pin indents in the back bottom top of the foundation. This trunk has an Eagle lock and also a first time to encounter, these # 2 style/size Latches with the double star and bow-tie pattern. Hope you find it interesting!!
