Item details

An antique Beals and Selkirk Trunk Company Carpenter's Tool Box. From what I can tell this particular tool trunk is RARE. I have not been able to find another online. My best guess is that this trunk was made sometime at the turn of the century. The Beals and Selkirk Company started up 1889 in Detroit, MI and then relocated a few years later in Wyandotte, MI. In 1955 the company was out of business. They didn't seem to specialize in any particular trunk. They made all kinds and types of trunks and shipped them all across the United States. This trunk is in overall great shape for its age. The only think that is missing is the middle latch which would have locked the trunk. It has been removed. The other latches are intact and working. The box latches completely and carries nicely. The general construction is made of wood. They covered the outside with tin and then trimmed out the corners and seams with pressed steel and riveted brackets. Both doors open as you see in the pictures. There is a wood tray that sits on a couple brackets on the top of the case. You can also see in the lid portion of the case, there are two mounted brackets which would have held a level. I have a couple period levels listed on my shop that would have been used at the time. Also seen in the fold down door, there are a couple pieces of wood secured with leather straps and slits cut into them. This would have held a couple hand saws in the box. The overall dimensions of this tool trunk is 32 1/4" wide by 7" deep and 16" tall. The weight is 18 pounds empty. While this trunk is pretty big with a lot of efficient storage space, it still has the portability and feel of briefcase.
