Patents are basically a design license that allows a manufacturer the exclusive right for it's production. Typically from country to country the length of the patent protection varies but around 15-17 years was about the norm, so this one could have been made from 1868-to the early 1880's. These dome/hump tops were made right through the 1890's, values for them peaked in the late 1980's to early 90's along with Victorian furniture, values have crashed for both since that time. At auction comparable trunks now often go for under $150.00.
