Trunks were made in a large variety of shapes and sizes and from many materials and date back to pre-medieval times.
Here is a very brief summary of a few of the trunk styles made in the United States from the late 1700's.
Models made with brass banding are referred to as "brass bound" Jenny Linds.
They were so popular that the style continued until about 1870 in many sizes and varieties, including doll trunks.
The name started based on large trunks used by the wealthier people visiting the spa resort and racetrack at Saratoga Springs, New York.
The Saratoga Trunk evolved into a very large, round top style with fancy trim, covered in either leather, canvas, or metal.
Over the past thirty eight years, I have searched for more information on the history of trunks and for accurate information about trunk styles.
