Vintage Early 1900's Baseball Bat Traveling Trunk
When I found this years ago the information I received from the antique dealer from whom I bought it was that it was a "trunk" for baseball bats. There are no markings or stampings to verify that one way or another. Everything about it suggests that it is, despite no definitive proof. I've never seen one before any where. It stands 35 1/2" with a 10" diameter, the proper height to accommodate a baseball bat, and is softly lined in a felt material that would protect the bats a little. It's height might suggest more of a mid-1900s timeframe. It is made of a hard, masonite type material similar to that of a foot locker or certain suitcases of years past; it seems exactly the same to me. It is solid, extremely well made with a multi-riveted top and leather base banding. The leather handle is remarkably in good conditon but the strap that held the top on has broken and the leather slot it went through is missing except for its anchors. Unique and rare, you will have to make your own judgment as to the claim that it is a traveling trunk for baseball bats.
