    Hi guys,
    I have been trying to identify this trunk / manufacturer but have not succeeded yet. There are no labels anywhere, only SURETE marked on the lock. Can you help me :) The corner bumpers are quite rare i think. Only seen those on couple of Aux Etats-Unis before.

      It is a french trunk. The above link may be a helpful source. Surete translates to safety or security and is found on many french locks. I have seen this hardware on Aux Etats-Unis as well. This would be on the lower end of the french trunk spectrum, not the upper. Much luck thanks for the post.
