These are generically referred to as "Steamer trunks", after the fact they were often used for ocean travel on steamship prior to World War One. These travel trunks were also used for train and overland travel as well. The flat top type were produced mainly after the turn of the 19th Century, but remain in production to this day. Value, well at auction similar trunks often sell for less than $200.00.

I'm so familiar with this situation in which I have to sell things in my house because I can't transport them . I've been so many times and lost a lot of things, until I found the moving services site and these people are so experts into moving places from a house to another and to take even the most difficult thing in the house out. A moving company is one that helps people and business men to ship their goods from one region to another region. Most of the time they use the rental trucks and moving vans but for the international shipment they need to use shipment containers. ABF U-Pack is one of these moving companies providing you the best services to ship your goods from one place to another place.
