I won't pretend to know about antique trunks. I can onlytell you what i found out about this one from the web. I can not find a similartrunk after two hours searching but according to hmsantiquetrunks.Com, I canput the year between 1872 and the 1890s. The reason is that at one time (Iremember from when I was a kid), this trunk was covered with leather, tooledaround the edges. This seems to place the trunk from the early 1800s to the1890s.
Because it has latches on it means it was made some time after 1872. I couldn't find any information on the paper lining, whichis odd and cool at the same time. It appears two young girls are holding a boychild at gun point.
I would love to hear the story behind that! This item is in the category "Antiques\Furniture\Trunks & Chests". The seller is "art_mb_e9oqv4i6w" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States.
