    Does anyone here know the history of this trunk by chance? I bought it at a garage sale for like $8 a little less than 20 years ago and we LOVE it so much. Thanks!

      For $8 you stole it. That looks like a very interesting lock on it.

      Thanks! Yeah we just love it and always have. I can’t wait to find out more about this trunk.

      your trunk is a barrel top trunk from around very late 1890's to early 1900's because of the metal lid lift and the flat crown like hardware on the top edges, the pressed tin slat clamps were patented in 1880 by Charles Taylor, hard to tell your front latches look like they have clover or cross holes in them patented 1882 by Taylor also, crystallized tin finish, gold was the most popular color but also came in others, silver, green, blue, red, very common style trunk made by hundreds of trunk makers at the time, even though the hardware was patented in the early 1880's it was used for decades, without a label hard to say who the maker was

      Thanks so much! Will I ever be able to date it within a few years do you think or will it always be date ranges? I would be so excited to know it was from the 1800’s.

      Well it's like I said, because hardware was used for decades, it's very hard to be exact on dates, most of the time if you can get within five to ten years your doing good, I still say late 1890's to early 1900's
