  1. Another nice find. Your house must look like an early 1900s railroad depot by now. I'm jealous. LOL
  2. Great find, I love the big ones and the embossed tin is very cool.
  3. Oh geez, I love this one, can't wait to see how it turns out.
  4. Well, it's an old flat top trunk, probably over 100 years old but how much I couldn't tell you. Unfortunately there were a lot of people making them back then and they were made by the thousands so un...
  5. Well, that cleaned up really well, very pretty trunk,
  6. Did that come from a Michigan State fan? All it needs is a big white S on there now.
  7. I saw that on there too and noticed it was near you. I was laughing to myself thinking about how it might wind up on here. LMAO It looks like a keeper.
  8. Did you find that on Craigslist?
  9. I dunno buddy, I love the trunk but not the mottling so much.
  10. That's a beauty greendog, great to see the progression too.
  11. Oh, that's a nice one. Love the description of the trip too, been there done that. LOL
  12. Cool, you have a dresser or bureau trunk. You don't see these a lot so, yeah, they are kinda rare. Nailing down a value is kinda hard since they aren't seen for sale a lot and condition is important. ...
  13. Can't wait to see it when you're done.
  14. No room, who are you kidding. There is always room for one more. LOL Nice trunk, very similar to this one on Marvin Millers site. http://www.thisoldtrunk.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_in...
  15. Well, the bad news is that if it doesn't have something that identifies the maker like a sticker or plate with a name on it or some kind of hardware particular to a maker there isn't really a way to t...
  16. Nice job, post some more pics, if you've been lurking a while you know we love pics.
  17. Wow, that leather is really nice Greendog, great find.
  18. Great job saving that trunk from a horrible paint job.
  19. Okay, I think the covering you're talking about is something called vulcanized fiber, don't know exactly what it is really but you see it on wardrobe trunks a lot. I don't see the confusion myself, it...
  20. That's a beauty. The interior looks fine to me, a little dark maybe but that's a keeper.
  21. That's a wardrobe trunk, or the shell of a wardrobe trunk. Google 'wardrobe trunk' and hit images and you'll have an idea of what it originally looked like.
  22. Excellent work.
  23. It does look awesome. It looks like it's in pretty good shape, with a bit of cleaning it should be something that will have people saying "whoa, cool, where did you get that?". I'm afraid I can't tell...
  24. I agree, really nice transformation, as always.
  25. Without any identifying marks there isn't any way to know who the maker was. It looks like a nice little trunk though, I like the pattern on the metal.
  26. Oh cool, I would love to find one of those in the trash, or even at a reasonable price. It's hard to tell from the pics but it doesn't look too rough. I'm afraid this isn't the place to get a value th...
  27. Nice looking trunk except for that broken latch. J.S.S. would have been the initials of the owner and Denver would have been home, I guess that is pretty common for trunks.
  28. LMAO, I love how you say it is your first one. You've got the bug haven't you? Nice looking trunk, it looks like whoever did it did a nice job.
  29. There are a few places to pick up tips on refinishing trunks online if you look around. Here are a couple you might find helpful. http://www.brettunsvillage.com/trunks/ http://www.legacytrunks.c...
  30. Very cool.
  31. Here is another with a stamp. http://www.legacytrunks.com/beveled%20top%2072860/beveled%20top%20trunk%2072860_main.htm
  32. Pretty trunk you've got there. It looks as though it will need a bit of work but if you put the time and effort into it the thing should be something you'll be proud of for quite a while. You can find...
  33. I can't get over the difference Greendog. I was watching that one on ebay and thought it would look good with some work. I'm glad it went to someone that could bring it back.
  34. Nice bonus with the new house.
  35. LMAO Oh yeah, there it is.
  36. Have you bought a trunk even though you don't have room for it or know what you're going to do with it? That's a dead giveaway. Once you get to that point you just as well start all your posts in here...
  37. You're addicted. LOL
  38. Very cool T-man, gotta love those odd ones. Looks like it was taken care of really well too.
  39. Thanks for the comments and the loves folks.
  40. Sharp looking trunk and you gotta love the background too.
  41. Very pretty, someone really put the time in to decorate that one.
  42. Very cool trunk Marvin, I like that look a lot. Good work on the article too, very informative.
  43. aroc, I'm pretty sure you're first impression is right and that those aren't coins of any kind. I'm no expert but I've messed around with coins a bit and have been into civil war store cards for a whi...
  44. Thanks for the input and the loves folks.
  45. Very nice. Did you buy it that nice or have you done any work to it?
  46. Very cool display.
  47. Nice little trunk, be careful though, they can be addictive. Try here to find out more: http://www.allexperts.com/central/howtoask.htm
  48. Really nice.
  49. Nice looking trunk you have there. You can find leather handles in several places including ebay and here: http://www.brettunsvillage.com/ Many of the places that have replacement parts for trun...
  50. Very nice, I'd love to see more pics after you clean it up a bit.
  51. See more
