So much is done with plastic nowadays, it's easy to find yourself better off with a cheaper, plastic equivalent to an old reliable product. I have a plastic footlocker which serves me well, but this one is a little bigger and will also make for a better piece of "furniture."
I was disappointed in the fact that the trunk sent to me has a nickle finish rather than the brass finish which was described and pictured. I would have sent it back, but that would have been too much of a bother for the sake of a mostly aesthetic issue.
I think the wheels are a weak point in the design, in that the manufacturer cuts into the wood frame to mount the two plastic wheel assemblies. If one of them breaks under stress, you have a trunk with a hole in it - and good luck trying to get it fixed.
Apart from that it is a nice item. Sturdier than the similar fiberboard trunks available for less. It's also made in America which would have left me with a good feeling about the few extra dollars spent if one or more persons hadn't dropped the ball along the way from manufacturer to consumer.
