      Very unique metal-work on the corners! I like how you contrasted the 2 metals. Super cool trunk!

      Ben, that is really an impressive trunk. Everything just stands out .Thanks for posting the label. I have been searching some older Nashville directories looking for advertising or a listing , no luck so far. The address comes up for Church services in the 1880s.Go figure, It's fun looking so I'll search some more.
