I’d like to share this beautiful completed (still finishing the handles) Martin Maier! This trunk is my dream trunk! Jim Cardoza from HMS Trunks restored one almost identical to this one a number of years back, and I used to stare at the photos of his trunk and think — that’s my dream trunk embodied! I never imagined I would actually have the chance to own and restore its twin. Brian McWhirter initially located this trunk in Virginia, and he was kind enough to let me have it! Thanks 1000 times Brian!!
Anyway I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, I think the restoration does it justice.
Incidentally — I have started a new trunk group on Facebook, titled “Antique Trunks — Steamer, Flattop, Dometop & Waterfall”.
FB allows for a more interactive experience, and allows mentoring of newly interested people in a much more active way. I will most likely be focusing my posts there going forward. Please consider joining me if you have an interest, I think you will find some familiar faces.
Anyway I hope you enjoy this beautiful trunk —
