Hello there! A friend has found this and is working to restore it.
Wondering what year this canvas steamer trunk could be from? Guess circa 1880-1900?
And what could this inscription mean “A.S. Germt N.”? A name & hometown of the owner i.e, germantown in short?
The lever has a bow shape symbol and side plates have a flower round shape.
In all side corners there is a “S”. Which might be the manufacturer.
Here is a list of manufacturers of the time if helpful for others (thanks other users for the useful replies!)
