I found this trunk in a storage auction. I tried to research this and saw "PAT. JUNE 26 1377". I came up with the following...
It is a 1875 antique Barrel Trunk with a Dome Top
Am I right?
What is the worth?
I think someone tried to "fix-it-yourself" and put a bright silver handle on one side and they put a huge screw through the back hinges with a block of wood attached. The lock apprears "broken in to." The leather handles are torn. The little compartment on the top of the box lid is still attached.
i have also attached more pictures
Is this beyond repair?
