I don't know much about this trunk. I purchased it at a flea market for $25 last fall. When I was cleaning it today, I noticed the "Yale & Towne MFG Co" imprint on the lock portion.

Something else that I thought was cool about the trunk is that there are a number of old photographs pasted inside.

I was hoping you might be able to tell me a bit more about my "find." I believe it's about 3' x 2' x 2 and 1/2 '. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    If you can locate a 1902 Sears catalog there is several pages of trunks with illustrations-description and prices-pages 1018 through 1022

    Your trunk is probably from around 1910 to 1920. Not sure who made it as there is no label. Yale & Towne is the lock maker, not the trunk maker.
