I inherited my great grandmother’s trunk and I’m trying to find out more about it. There’s no makers mark that I can find, although I’m not sure where to look. My grandmother painted the hardware, which I know decreases the value, but I’m more interested in finding out more about it if possible. I think it’s from the early 1900s based off of family lore, either purchased in New York or in France. I’m currently trying to make sure it’s properly protected by applying Renaissance Wax to it, which is why one half might appear to be a slightly darker tone.
