Hi Raye, I can help some with information about your trunk but not the framed prints. The trunk is an American made metal covered barrel stave top trunk, from the time period of about 1885 to 1900.
Hello Jon, Yes, I can give you information about your trunk but you may find it hard to believe. Many people would take a look at this trunk and think that it is an antique. Actually it is fairly new
Sandi, The Ed Roos Company made many styles of cedar chests at Forest Park, IL (the Forest Park Line)from about 1918 to 1951. For a while the serial numbers were easy to decode to get the manufacture
Melissa, This style trunk was usually called a cross slatted barrel top, or sometimes round top trunk and they were made by many American trunk companies with the same types of hardware from about 1890
John, Many of these antique trunks do not have any label or markings on them, especially if made after about 1900. This is an American made cross slat barrel top trunk with embossed metal covering.
