I just picked up this 30" Stallman (Frank A.) & Starr(Calvin R.) trunk up yesterday. The (Columbus Ohio )partnership existed between 1889 to 1894 when Mr.Starr retired .The label and partnership tells me that it was produced between these dates. It has some abundant hardware ,a mix of cast and tin. Thankfully it is at least all present, finding hardware becomes half the battle to refinish. It has the alligator tin pattern as well . It should clean up nicely. Neat lithographs that did not age well. Missing the top tray of course. Interior needs much work.I enjoyed the long drive along the Hudson River into Ny to get it.
