  1. Thank you Drill, greendog
  2. Thank you ChelleKelly, greendog.
  3. Thank you ChelleKelly, greendog.
  4. I would say from early to mid 1880's latches on front were patented around 1882 0r 83, the embossed metal was probably silver or gold in color originally, it's probably not but put a magnet on the emb...
  5. It would be better if the colors were maze and blue, looks to much like Michigan state, LOL!
  6. Wow! very unique trunk, yeah I have never seen solid brass hardware on a trunk, where all the hardware was brass, very cool, is the white trim work tin or what ?
  7. Appreciate it DavidP, I have learned from two of the best , Jim Cardoza, at HMS antique trunks, and Ben Brown out of New York, but a lot of learning comes from just doing it, over time you learn what ...
  8. The only silver hardware was when they dipped cast iron hardware in hot tin, this gave the hardware a bright silver color and protected it from rust, when you clean tin dipped hardware you can bring b...
  9. Thank you Yankeeintx and Amiar, greendog.
  10. It's up to you what you do, but all your hardware on this trunk was black, it was never silver or gold, and this is just me, don't paint it gold, it would look good all black with silver nail heads, b...
  11. Absolutely beautiful trunk and will be a stunner when done, can't wait to see it, great find David, greendog.
  12. Very nice job Drill, love it , greendog.
  13. Sorry Tom, The lid lifter was patented in Aug. of 1886 not 87, sorry, greendog.
  14. Very nice Tom, I'am glad to see you got one, looks to be in pretty good condition, i'am sure there are some issues but what trunk doesn't have some, this one is late 1880's, the metal lid lifter was p...
  15. Thanks Drill, yeah I know what you mean, sometimes its just about being in the right place at the right time, greendog.
  16. No I've never tried, and I don't think it's anything your going to find anywhere, greendog
  17. I don't believe your trunk is leather, it is vulcanized fiber, used on trunks sense 1890's or so, very durable and weather resistant, your trunk trunk is from around 1950's give or take a bit, this t...

  28. Mike , this would not be considered a Jenny Lind, Jenny Lind trunks have a distinct Hour glass or bread loaf shape, this is more along the lines of a stagecoach trunk, greendog.

  33. Thank you Johnsmith, greendog.
  34. Hey roket94, nice job compared to what it looked like before, because of the flat pressed tin finger like hardware on the top ends, I would say very late 1890's to 1900, also this is a travel trunk no...
  35. I would say mid to late 1880's monitor or waterfall style trunk ( front and back edges being rounded ) very nice cast hardware, The S is for J.H. Sessions and Sons, they patented that hardware and it ...
  36. Thank you mtg75, greendog.
