What a Rare Find is this Beautiful Vintage Large Steamer Trunk made by Shwayder Bros Inc. The outside is a marble swirl design of brown and black, the metal trim that runs along every edge is metal painted brown. All the hardware is Brass including: Latches, Lock, Corner Protectors, Handle Fasteners, Four Brass Feet and Three Beautiful Brass Hinges on the back.

The inside has been redone in a Brown and Cream colored fabric. There is a Brass Tag on the top that reads "Shwayder Bros Inc Denver Detroit", the Handle is imprinted with "Samsonite" and the Gorgeous Huge Brass Lock has "Samson" on it. The measurements are 30" Long x 16" Wide x 12" Tall. The Tray is 29" Long x 14 3/4" Wide x 3 1/2" Tall.

The Trunk is in Excellent Vintage Condition. One Side Handle is missing. There are some rubs, scratches and dings. The paint is chippy along the metal edge runner but overall there are no major flaws, a Great Treasure!

In 1910 Jesse Shwayder founded the Shwayder Trunk Manufacturing Company. To reflect the quality and durability of their luggage, the Shwayders named their first products "Samson" after the powerful Biblical character. The Shwayder brothers changed the name of their company in 1931 to Shwayder Brothers, Inc.

The shipping is high due to the dimensions of the trunk and the weight of the trunk alone is 23 pounds.
