I will send measurements later today.

I'd also like to see the label, that will help date the trunk.

I can not see it, been painted over. My husband verified it is identical to this.

Vanderman Manufacturing Co.was established in 1878 by William Vanderman and was located in Willimantic CT. The company manufactured heavy steel tool chests used by railroads and construction trades. Some of the smaller chests were used by The Wells Fargo Express Co. and were used as boot-boxes on stage coaches. Vanderman Manufacturing also made combination bench and pipe vises used in the steam fitting trade.Most people call these gold strong boxes when selling them to add to the romantic notion of having been on a stage coach. Vincent Nesci purchased the plant in 1966 and moved it to its present location in East Hampton CT.

Your box actually looks to be one of the older boxes from about 1900-1920 and may have been made for gold transport and not industrial since it has a velvet lining. These trunks have a value (painted, not original to the trunk) of $300 to $475 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com,
Ebay and letgo.com (local).

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

Please do click the stars now for this one, it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.
