I don't know much about this trunk other than it belonged to one of my grandparents or their parents who all immigrated from Germany. The lock says Patented Mar, 69 & APR, 77. The slat clamps say Patented Mar.16.80. It has little wheels on the bottom and they are all flat on one side. It is large (approx. 36"W x 21"D x 29"H @ tallest point)
I would love to learn more about this type of trunk if anyone is more knowledgeable than I. Where would a trunk maker put a maker's mark? I would also love to find an original key if anyone has any leads.
