This is a fabulous WW II era army trunk in green made by Shwayder Bros, which was/is also the Samsonite luggage company. Note the metal reinforcements on the corners and around all the edges.
Condition: Given its age and use, the piece is in great shape. The inset is worn on the edges as one would expect from removing and replacing it, and there is definite wear on the inside of the trunk itself as well as scratches outside, but overall, this is in far better shape than any other we’ve seen.
Dimensions: Approximately 32″W x 12″H x 16″D
Price: Was $125.00. Now just $50.00! Maine State Sales Tax of 5.5% applies.

Payment Information: Please see our “Details: Payment & Pricing” page.
Shipping & Delivery Information: Please see our “Details: Shipping & Delivery” page.

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – it was his baby.
He loved me, and oh how I loved him.
