This trunk has a very nice combination of wood, leather, and metal components. This one has straps, buckles and a decorative trim. The Trunk appears to be made of pine, though unconfirmed, with wooden slats. It is a solid trunk with extra metal reinforcement along the edges. The hardware may be copper or brass, we know that it is metal. The straps appear to be the original leather. It has black metal mounts, leather strap handles on the sides, and 4 metal clasps on the front. The lock bares the maker's stamp “EAGLE LOCK CO. TERRYVILLE CT.” Eagle was one of the largest trunk and cabinet lock makers in the world. Terryville is now the location for the Lock Museum of America.
