    Thanks for looking and helping. My mother picked this up for $20.00 – She has been watching American Pickers- LOL . It is about 28”long 18” high and 14” deep. It has a paper liner with what looks like sea shells. On a scale of 1 - 10 this is about a 5. I am just starting to learn about trunks and would appreciate and help. Thanks Michael

      Hi Micheal-th -- you have a standard type tin embossed trunk from about early 1900's. The wood slats are probably oak. It looks like it is missing a cover plate for the lock. There were countless companies churning these out at the time so without a label it is difficult to identify a maker. It is in rough shape but has character. For 20 bucks a good pick in my books...

      agree with trunkman -- although one rarely sees the shell embossed tin -- which makes it rather unique -- would be refinish up nicely -- what is the inside like -- any pics
