Thank you egreeley 1976
Drill, I love looking at your work, it puts a whole different twist on trunk refinishing, I have a small Romadka Brothers trunk that is rather plain looking void of any ornate hardware and I'am going ...
Thank you mtg75.
I agree with the above easily 1920's and probably much later, as for the Eagle lock the 5676 is the key number for the lock.
Thank you MALKEY and Lady_Picker
Again, I appreciate it so very much Tom, thank you.
Thanks everyone for the loves and comments, appreciate it.
Thank you Damon.
Thank you Damon.
No disrespect esegal, but you need to turn your pictures so the download in the right position they are very hard to look at sideways.
From what I can see, looks to be early 1900's
Early 1900's metal covered Monitor/ waterfall trunk, they called them waterfall trunks because of the front and back rounded edges, without a makers label hard to say who the maker was, they were made...
Sorry Tom not a Louis Vuitton fan, for me personally there's just no eye appeal, they all look the same to me, but if you like it, I'am glad you got one!
Would like to see some better pictures of the trunk, with lid closed please.
Not usually a big fan of flat tops because most are just to plain and not very interesting to me, but I really like this one, you don't see them to often with all the cast hardware, I think it will lo...
The fact that the wood slats run front to back have nothing to do with the cross slat clamp patent by Charles Taylor.
OK, this may be confusing, it was to me at first, as explained to me by Jim Cardoza, this is not a true cross slat design by definition of the patent by Charles Taylor in march of 1880, the wood cross...
Well Tom, I think this trunk dates prior to 1880, because of the hardware on it, none of which dates after 1880, and the lack of cross slat clamps on the top which were patented in 1880, The use of th...
Yeah, first time for me on the hardware also Tom.
Thank you Tom.
Thanks Tom appreciate it very much, good to hear from you.
Right up my alley, nice trunk Tom, love it.
Well, in my opinion, there's not a big market if any at all, this is kind of the big elephant trunk that nobody wants, I see dozens of this type for sale every day and people can't give them away, the...
Thank you SEAN68 and Mrstyndall.
Thank you SEAN68.
Thank you junkbuddy.
Than you Scotty, appreciate it.
Thank you very much Tman, appreciate it.
Thank you GateKeeper.
.Thank you Torrancecollect, and good luck with your trunk.
Hard to say for sure but I would guess early military of some kind, more around WWI, can't make out the print other than K. G. Kincaid, and what looks like HOSP, possibly hospital, definitely not a r...
Thank you Vynil33rpm, and vetraio50.
Thank you Longings, FatBoy64, Neighborguysfan, and usedcarlady.
I don't believe that it's that old, seems to be some what incomplete as far as the carving goes, oriental theme, your not going to hurt anything by repairing the bottom, and yes these were reproduced ...
Yeah i read your link, your trunk may have been all black as the link stated, there were so many different combinations of finishes that its hard to say but by no means is the monitor trunk a rare tru...
no problem, good luck with it.
In my opinion, some one has repainted the trunk at some point, so cleaning and refinishing it to your taste is up to you, it definitely needs some TLC.
Early 1900's monitor style trunk also called waterfall trunk because of the rounded top edges, not a steamer trunk but rather a travel trunk, the metal on trunks is a thin gauge sheet metal coated in...
Thank you Emmy_1776, I wish you good luck with your trunk, show us some pictures when you are done.
Thanks Damon, appreciate it very much.
Thank you Ben, watchsearcher, fortapache, shughs, thank you all.
Thank you blunderbuss2, yeah sometimes I amaze myself, thanks again.
Thanks Drill, appreciate it very much as always.
well I was wrong, mine has vertical slats on the ends with the oak leaf hardware.
Very nice Jim, looks great, I have the exact same trunk but mine has a steel lock instead of brass, other than that its the same trunk, nice to see what it will look like when I'am done.
Common trunk for the time, without a label impossible to say who the maker was as this hardware was used by everyone.
OK, nice trunk for a curb find, not a steamer trunk, steamer trunks are flat top usually no more than 14 inches tall, this is a travel trunk from around the mid 1880's to late 1890's , patent date on...
Well to be honest, it's in rough shape, broken wood slats, broken or missing metal corners, worth very little in this condition, yes you could do it your self, if you paid someone like me it would cos...
