I have had many opportunities to pick up a monitor trunk example over the years to add to my collection but failed to do so as most all consisted of the plain metal body covering and tin slat clamps which really didn't do much for me. So when this one came up with die cast trims which I have never seen before and the butterfly and flower body metal covering... I knew I found my example & I'm glad I waited. It measures in at 34" long x 21" deep x 26" tall. No interior tray and the one half of the lid area is gone. The lock looks like it has a worn machine brass face area, but can't see any signs of any makers letters with in those marks ... but it does have a star like stamp on the back side. This trunk reminds me of a Romodka Brothers style trunk with the vertical end slat and kind of similar hardware shaping, but can't find any example to verify this. If anyone has a trunk with similar hardware I would very much like to see it. Hope you find it as interesting as I do.
