And yes the latches on the front were patented in July 9th 1872.
Not sure what the N. is for but the 36, 38 should be the length of the trunk, 36 inches or 38 inches, two sizes. The CRYS. probably stands for crystallized finish, which came in many colors, gold bein...
Thank you GateKeeper.
Thank you mtg75, ho2cultcha, and Blammoammo.
The lock was made by the Eagle lock co. not the trunk, they did not make trunks, without a label almost impossible to say for sure who made the trunk.
Early 1900's 1910 to 1920 give or take a bit.
Thank you Damon.

Your trunk is not a Jenny Lind, I didn't mean to imply that it was, just referring to the different woods that trunks body's are made of, your trunk is a barrel top or round top style trunk.
Jenny Lind trunks were made around late 1840's to about early 1870's only about a 25 year period or so, they were bread loaf or hour glass shaped from the end view, and had big brass buttons with bras...
Thank you sanhardin.
Yes, Hat box or compartment, this one is somewhat altered, I put a jewelry or clove box in front of the hat box, most were not constructed this way, the jewelry or clove box was in the lid. and thank ...
I think this one looks older than it is, I think the latches on the front were patented in the early 1890's, almost all trunks had pine body's some jenny Lind's had poplar body's, hard to tell from pi...

It's hard to research people's names without having to pay for information, if your willing to do that, I would start with Dorthy Whitaker, Whitaker being the same initial as in C.H.W. possible husban...
The stamped metal slat clamps, were patented in 1880 by C. A. Taylor, they were used for several decades, the metal lid lift and the flat stamped corner pieces tell me it was probably made around la...
Thank you krimsynkittyn.
1st one, I have had this marking on leather covered trunks, don't think it's a Federal mark, but not 100% sure, 2nd one is a steamer trunk, steamer trunks were a specific size and shape, usually in th...
That's not necessarily true either, you can have two trunks of this style, that look exactly alike, same hardware, same tin pattern, same size, and be made by two different trunk manufacturers, withou...
