@ Instead of calling it as 'Trunk iron box', it can be simply said as 'steel trunk or trunk or steel box'

My grandfather had a wooden almirah which is made of quality teak wood and very strong. My younger brother wanted it. Now the almirah is with him. My grand father had a iron safe which was used by him for keeping the money and important papers. The same is available at our native place. I have a trunk iron box which was given to my mother by my grandfather when she was coming to my father's place first time. The same is taken by me and it is now with me. A very strong box. My wife kept it safely in the house. A good box.
It is the fashion which has made these luggage carriers as the thing of past otherwise as Mohan has very rightly indicated they are far more superior in strength and durability.
