You need to look for a manufacturer mark inside or on the bottom. Right now there is not enough information.

Unfortunately there are not enough photos or info to help. There are too many new trunks made to look old. Can you show photos of the locks, hinges, and inside? Are there any markings on it? How big is it (length, width, height)?

Are those straps real leather (feels different than fake)?

Is there a TM or any info on the lock itself?

Maybe with more info, I can get you started. Thanks!

This posting/question has the same problems your other 2 questions have;
Insufficient pictures and information for anyone to state anything about value.
Need pictures of top, ends, back, inside and even bottom if possible.
Measurements?
Close-up pictures of locks.
Any available information about age, where it came from, any personal knowledge about the trunk.

If you are acquiring these items from a storage unit action or an estate sale it would be better to just state this and we would know you may not have very much information.

You can always send pictures and information to online forums as these members have a lot of knowledge about vintage trunks. They will want more pictures.

You can also send it to Reddit and see what information their members have:

I could be incorrect as there's not enough information to determine. It seems similar to the trunks from the 1800s. As others have said, we need more info in order to research.
