While researching this trunk I came across this site and someone asking about a similar trunk they had purchased. Mine stands about 22 inches tall. I learned from the other post its a barrel top. It had wheels (3 out of 4). Its in rough shape as someone tossed it away so I got it for free. I was thinking about restoring it, but I know if its anything special I shouldn't mess with it. I cant find any markings to indicate whom made it or where it came from. Im taking a educated guess that its from the 1890s. Im not sure what the picture on the inside is. Its a princess with a tambourine . Im not sure if that has any significance or if it was added decades later. If anyone could provide any insight about this that would be most appreciated. Like i said I don’t want to start taking rust off or anything only to find out I shouldn’t have.
