    What a wonderful find!! Oh! and to have things inside - Fantastic! Do you do house clearance or similar? I love all of them!! The picture looks Victorian era!

    Nice bunch o' trunks. The first one is a 'monitor' or 'waterfall' style of trunk early 1900's. Second one hard to say who would have made it -- but that is a high quality no 5 latch on it so it was well built, probably around the same era -- last one standard flattop trunk with nice slat configuration to it and front guides -- again dame approximate date.

    Thank you trunkman and Justanovice, these were in my grandmothers attic for at least 60 years in Kannsas City

    Nice that they have come down through the family!! I was too young when my Granmothers died, so someone else must have cleared the attics!!

    Beautitful lithograph. Will you be able to save it? restore or remove it? Any ideas about how to do that?

    hi dean -- trunkingforfun and you seem to have the same questions on saving the lithographs -- left some information for the two of you on my site on the trunk that use to be a canvas trunk -- it is the dark brown trunk if you want to check it out -- happy valentine's day
