    @trunkman I came across your posts on other trunks from many years ago - not sure if you're still here.

    Hoping you may have some helpful information on this trunk.

    I live in Sydney, Australia...trunk has been owned by the same family for a long time, prior to that was bought at a deceased items auction. No wording re maker, only markings on lock Corbin Cabinet Lock & key, number on side handle & Melbourne sticker.

    Any idea of age or any other information really appreciated.

    Thanks
    Cath

      A few patents images that could potentially apply to provide a time frame for this trunk. Many patents were used for a couple of decades after the filing date.
      This style of trunk was made by the thousands by hundreds of makers. Thanks for the post.
