Has a sticker that says" Tahoe Tavern "/ Lake Tahoe , Cal. / ( Closed in 1950, and torn down now.) This was where all the rich Gentlemen went in the 1920's-1940's. Also, has a White Star Line sticker that says " Naples" ( This is the line that had the " Titanic") . If you are a dealer, or a do-it- yourself person, this is the trunk for you.( $ 700.00-$1000.00, refinished and repaired ). Nice item ( RH).
