Found this sitting in a barn. Owner said it has been there for at least 50 years. Label on top says Bingham Trunk Co. Buffalo NY. As you can see on the interior photo it is not solid wood. On the label it says "5 Ply Construction / 3 Ply Veneer Then it list "something" galvanized fiber(first word is unreadable.
What I thought was interesting was the double dowels located on the front and side. Also has the protectors on all sides. Seems like what ever was to be stored in this was well protected. The trunk is solid and extremely sturdy.
Was thinking that maybe this was 1930's. Not sure if anyone has anything to share as I can not find another one like it and there s not much listed about the company that I could find. Also wanted some advice on how to clean it up without damaging the covering. It is in good shape just has staining on it.
