Collectibles-General (Antiques)/"Neverbreak"



I have a trunk full of stickers that I have protected as best as can documenting this trunks travels  Last date was 1934? i would prefer someone interested in its original condition and not strip it of all its documentation. Any buyers? I have many more pictures Ant way ti ID the original owner from the plate?

That's great that you've preserved the trunk with its original stickers. This Neverbreak brand trunk from the Goldsmith & Son company of Newark, NJ was made sometime between about 1910 to the 1920's and there were many styles of these wardrobe trunks. I have never found or heard of any remaining records of the company to identify the owners from the serial numbers or registration numbers. Hopefully someone will be interested in your trunk, but this is not really a sales website so you might want to list it on craigslist, ebay, etc.
