Here is a really interesting piece of history. It is an antique steamer trunk . There is a label inside that reads: Beauty And Strength / Motif: Male Lion, facing left with his right front paw on a shield with the letter " D" / The Best Trunks Bear This Mark ( on a waving banner, below Lion) / Registered Jan'y 12, 1897.// 25 1/2" High x 38" wide x 22" in Depth. Right locking clasp missing and both leather straps separated. But, still a really nice item. Embossed : J.L. Milton / Oakland ,Calif., on one end... and J.L.M on the other end. 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).
