I cannot provide very much information, but I will provide some suggestions that may help you find the information you're looking for.
First: your pictures do not provide the type of information researchers need to help you with answers.


Pictures should be of the full front (looking straight at the trunk - no angles), full top, full picture of end, and full picture of bottom.
A picture of the lock and maybe the corners of the trunk, as every detail tells something about a trunk.
You will need a full description - condition, measurements, and any history you can provide, even if it's only the area the trunk is located.

From what I can tell about your trunk, it appears that it was probably a 'custom' order and made in a small shop. It appears that it may have been some type of storage trunk.
I'm not that familiar with old trunks, except most brand-name trunks are more elaborate and have better locks.

As to value, where it is located will determine the final value as shipping heavy trunks is very expensive.


I live in Florida and trunks like this can be found at yard sales and usually for less than $50.

Here are some links that you can check out. Some links are for information and others are for asking questions:
