This Antique, Victorian, Martin Maier Co. Of Detroit, Michigan, USA, Slatted Oak Dome Top Trunk is Original; Having Alternating Tapered and Beveled, Red and Golden Oak Bentwood Slats Over a Pine Case Construction. Design has black enameling and painted accents on hardware, a black metal bottom (with three, grooved, oak slats), and both ends are monogrammed with black letters, "HRD" (initials).

Hardware's complete and original, including hinges, castors, hasps, corners, lock and all other iron and steel facets. Interior hasn't anything missing, including: holding drawer, tray, hidden pocket'drop-box', bonnet box, slide posts, latches, leather pulls or accessory sections.

Eriod chromolithographs and patterned, linen, liner paper are original, without alterations or cleaning, and are 99.9% covered, (even sides and undersides). 77", and were manufactured at Maier's factory, using his own exclusive patent design, same as the hinges reading, "Pat'd Apr, 29, 78" as well as the three hasps all marked by a numeral "2. This trunk is sturdy, level, solid, in excellent functional and'presentation' condition.

FLAWS: Lock is without key. A binding strip is loosened in tray (interior upper left section). Bonnet top is unattached, but intact, still having original brasses. A small leather strip is broken mid-center, above lock area, though its sides and brackets remain. Extensive research proves Maier trunks are rare, especially when all interior components are accounted for with lithographs, drawer inserts and linings being original to date of manufacture.

This one is superb on all accounts, with authenticity guaranteed. Note: Leather side handles are trunk's only replacements, and they're not properly stitched properly into brackets.

Provenance is limited, but accurate. Trunk is from the estate of Ms. Madelaine Hoover of Pineland, Tx. An American lady pilot Veteran of WWII, and avid collector.

She lived in Germany after the war, then acquired this piece on returning to the U. Her father was also (a highly ranked), U. P ick-Up is FREE in Hemphill, Texas 75948. I'm happy to answer questions or add photos!
