    An Oliver Hardy Small Steamer Trunk, Circa 1920s. Of traditional design, wood with metal enforcements and hinges, painted a dark olive green, leather handles on either side (though both are mostly disintegrated now), maker's tag reads "Established 1840 / Geo. B. Bains & Sons, Inc. / Mfrs. Philadelphia," top lid with white-painted lettering reading "Oliver Hardy / 11 / Hotel," numerous travel-related stickers on top and sides including one from the Savoy Hotel in London, though most are now worn off, trunk still locked so contents unknown (if any); appearing to have been used by the star for decades, up through the early 1950s when he and Stan Laurel toured England. (Please note this trunk is in heavily worn and rusted condition due to use.)
    17" x 31" x 13"
