I recently purchased a trunk from an antique shop. The shop owner told me that the trunk came from India and is 200 years old. I have no idea what type of wood it is made of and I been unsuccessful in locating a manufacturing logo or any inscriptions. I can share that it does have square headed screws, four wooden wheels underneath, and is approximately 3ft high. This is my first time purchasing and item from an antique shop so I wanted to know if I received a bang for my buck or if I was suckered for being a novice. I paid $200 for the trunk. If anyone could tell me what year or country of origin they think it comes from I would greatly appreciate it.
I plan on using it to store blankets and I just fell in love with the trunk because I have never seen anything like it. Either way I plan on keeping this treasure in my family for generations to come.
