"Funny, my mind went straight to height whereas yours went to the trunks length, but you are correct we should have stated which dimension axis we were referring to. Excellent website for trunk information by the way."

"Normally a dimension shown as 14" would mean the length, but since you, Tonya, didn't clarify that is what I thought.  Length X Width X Height, which is why I said I've never seen a 14" (long) trunk. Tonya, all that new info…"

"From everything I've read and according to the dictionary Steamer trunks were made to fit under the bunks of a ship. This is from Collectors Weekly who I feel like are a pretty reputable authority: "Flat-top trunks, or steamer trunks, were…"

"Steamer trunks were also used on trains, coaches and buggies and motor vehicles. As I stated the rounded tops prevented agents from stacking other freight on top. I've never seen a 14 inch steamer trunk..."

"What are the dimensions of your trunk? There is a great deal of information on Wikipedia about the various styles of trunks used over time, including the steamer trunk.  Just keep in mind the information portrayed there should always be backed…"

"My understanding is true steamer trunks were no more then 14" and were flat topped because of limited room on the Steam ships. "

"Some old trunks have the manufacturer's name on the latches or locks. Your trunk is called a "Steamer trunk". The rounded top prevents shipping agents from stacking other trunks on top."

"Unlikely to be from the civil war, and impossible to prove without documentation. More likely to be late 19th to early 20th century. Good info about trunks here (click the links too): https://antiquetrunksandchests.com/antique-trunk-hisory/"

Help with Trunk Identification?

Can anyone tell me anything about this trunk?  It also had numbers painted on the side in Black paint. The women I bought it from said it was her great grandmothers and had been told it belonged to a civil war soldier, but I thought that era trunks were more canvas lined because they needed the metal for war? The metal is magnetic so not zinc. Thanks!See More

Dantesca style chair?

Can anyone tell me anything about this Dantesca style chair? It looks hand carved but has more modern saw cuts underneath and on the bottom of the legs (could be that they were cut shorter at on point to put it on wheels as it has holes in the bottom). Under the seat is a very thin wood. The upholstery had been laminated when I bought it so looks new but definitely has that 60s/70s feel. I haven't seen one with the rungs under the arms either. Thank you!See More

About Me
I have been passionate about antiques since my parents used to drag me around flea markets selling stuff at age 6. I had a booth for a while at an antique mall but decided I prefer being the treasure hunter and collector of unique pieces.
Tell us about your interest in antiques, collecting and any antique related websites, blogs, businesses.
I'm particularly fascinated with European 11th-17th century antiques especially having lived in England for several years. Most of my expertise however is in colonial furniture having grown up in New England.
