  8. That Wheat Tin is my absolute favorite metal.It's a monster size a stunner in the room, so I love it. The rest is just ....wow. It's a ton of work to get it looking that good so Thanks you for sharing.
  9. http://patentimages.storage.googleapis.com/pages/US362305-0.png I don't believe this is the slat clamp, it's similar in shape.Close as I can get. https://patentimages.storage.googleapis.com/pages...
  10. Cool Tom. I get it, don't get me wrong, I love trying to get as close as I can too. Sometimes that is much easier to do with a label with an address. Especially when you can research when they may hav...
  11. Another patent that was sometimes used. https://patentimages.storage.googleapis.com/c4/ac/23/aca748751fce77/US180129-drawings-page-1.png

  16. Incidentally here is the 1859 Jacob Parker patent that is mentioned in the above Cincinnati Directory 1874 advertisement.Enjoy! https://patentimages.storage.googleapis.com/e4/d2/a5/5a7c8a6feb06ca/...
  17. Here are just some of the patent images that Tom previously mentioned. Remember it can never be older than the patent dates,These patents were used for well into the 1890's even the 1900's.Without an...
  18. Tom this is really a wonderful trunk . Love the brass on the slat clamps, the double nailing and the patterns on the leather. The metal work reminds me of a few of the older prolific trunk makers su...
  19. I'm in agreement as to the age. I have seen these "Sea Shell" handle caps only a few times over the years. I did search both the 1872 patent sitemap as well as the design patent sitemap searching for ...
  20. It is an entirely American made cross slat trunk made by many manufacturers. Without a maker's label it is impossible to say which company made it.
  21. Michelson had a more than few different swivel caster patents over the years. here are a few patent image examples. https://patentimages.storage.googleapis.com/45/ea/fd/108c45c1d0e1e4/US280061-drawin...

  23. Hi Anna, I agree a neat little carpenters tool box. There would have been a top tray. Many carpenters took pride in their profession and made there own boxes.My grandfather made his own tool box. Th...
  24. Pictures can always be edited or changed on CW, but it's cool if you don't. I have found that dropping a bar of Ivory soap inside my trunks for about a week kills those odors. I had a similar trunk wi...
  25. It appears from the pictures provided to be a canvas Trunk of European origin. The Germans and the Swiss did use that style of brass lock hardware. If the fabric is marked "Dresden" There is a good...
  26. There was something like 40 or 50 trunk dealers across the United States that sold the Indestructo Trunk line over at least a 20 year span. This light weight ,well made, veneer trunk was made by the ...
  27. There were around 15 different wall trunk makers over a 25 year span.If you counted dresser and Bureau trunks there are a 50 more patent owners. Just a few names that come to mind F. Palica ,Egge...
  28. Unfortunately I can't always share those images in CW's response format.(Bookmarked website's can be copy and pasted here.) Ha! Your wife and mine sound universally related in their response to the...
  29. Sorry so late on the response David. I agree with Greendog on all his choices, Every person is different.My problem is that I appreciate way to many makers .A couple things: I collect Trunk images, ...

  31. No label, interior was nothing special . I have seen this style of hardware multiple times over the years.

  36. Hey T-man, Just thought I would share something that I came across. Many times We seek to know who manufactured these trunks. Most times there are not labels on the interior.Below is a link with mu...
  37. Nothing to forgive Tom, No apology ever necessary with me pal. I just hope you feel better. Take things light, never sweat the small stuff and always keep a peaceful smile in your heart.
  38. Incidentally, that snake like metal pattern is also not seen very often. I find it really cool that he didn't just use flat metal in those 2 front locations. https://patentimages.storage.googleapis...
  39. Glad to help get this rare trunk into good hands. Enjoy !

  41. Thanks Tom . Stock -not brass, it's High gloss enameled steel.It's an awesome baked on finish too (common to the period). Incidentally the only surfaces I did not repaint were the lock or the latches....
  42. Thanks for the loves.
  43. https://www.legacytrunks.com/Embosse%20Metal%20patterns.htm The Tin Pattern is Herringbone.Rust never sleeps, gently using Fine steel wool usually cleans in up a bit, for a period of time. Here is...
  44. It's funny but rare seems to be coming out of the wood work these days. I saw a very similar M&M with these latches about a month ago out in Missouri . Martin had 120 employees to keep busy with one ...
  45. Yes Tom, That is the "Four Chiefs" trunk I did six years ago. It has a twin called "The Buffalo Slaughter". A wonderful Lady who goes by" Thunder " on collector's weekly owns them now. Her trunk colle...

  47. One thing for me that is unique about this trunk is the bird lithograph. I have seldom seen the color "orange" used in litho pictures.I never thought you were off base with Schmit being the possible ...
  48. That's a great trunk in every way Tom so glad that it is in good hands. I agree it does resemble The Schmit Brothers trunk that Kathy Kay posted, Having said that, there were other makers that I have...

  50. It's a wonderful trunk in great condition. The lock, the leather embellishments, it amazingly has original "HANDLES", even the interior screams quality manufacturer. That's a great pick up.
