      I have a trunk By BB&B, not in business long about 25 years or so, this is a wardrobe trunk not a steamer trunk, steamer trunks were of a specific size and shape, usually in the 30 to 38 inch in length and no more than 14 inches in height so they could fit under the bunks/berths on steamer ships, hence the name steamer trunk, never heard of Worthen Paxton, without provenance it's just a guess as I'm sure he was not the only one with that name.
