    I would say a competant locksmith could get it open and supply a key for a fair price .

    I got an old trunk opened and a new key made for an old trunk I had at my local hardware store / locksmith. Cost about $25.

    Hi, I have the patent for this Winship trunk and other Winship patents, ads, articles, etc. about the Winsip trunk company, one of the first trunk makers in Boston. They bought out the Faber trunk company of Utica, NY in the early 1900's and had their main factory in Utica NY in the following years. They were a very large trunk company and made many styles of trunks. I own a miniature model of this wardrobe trunk with the original Winship label. You can check with me about getting some of the historical information.

    My great grandfather was Walter Whyte Winship (W.W. Winship). I have plenty of information on the history of my family and the trunks if you are interested.

    Hello Kaitlin! I just found this beautiful trunk, it needs a lot of work, but I am interested in the family history and the trunks, I am considering getting this trunk for my living room, I don't know how to restore it, but the trunk is so nice that I would very much like to restore it myself. If you have any info on how-to restore this trunk I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
