T126 - Rare & Unique Hickory Slat Trunk!


Size: 34" wide, 22" tall, 18" deep. Great size for use as a coffee or side table!

This is a true one of a kind, high quality "1868 Excelsior Patent" style slat trunk custom made by John Head, a master craftsman. Made from an antique trunk body with antique hardware, covered in solid hickory slats, with a full cedar lining and tray. Complete with two antique front latches, a working lock and original barrel key, interior lift out tray, and metal covered bottom with wood slats and glides. This is a recreation of the Excelsior Patent trunks and based on the 1880's style. Made with solid hickory slats attached to a thick antique pine body, with a solid cedar lining. Very strong, heavy, and well made! Custom made thick stitched leather handles were installed with antique holders. Every detail of the trunk was carefully finished, such as metal edge bindings, a thick leather lid lifter, and a metal lid valance, just like the original Victorian slat trunks. The finish on the trunk is hand rubbed satin tung oil for a beautiful and durable finish. There is a signed makers label in the lid. No other hickory slat trunks have been made like this one! See the details in all the pictures provided. Feel free to contact me for any questions you may have.

A truly beautiful and impressive trunk which is a real conversation piece. The wood grain on the trunk is quite beautiful. This is a great size for storage and for use as a functional table. The Excelsior Patent trunks were designed to be the strongest trunks ever made and beautiful enough to be used as a piece of furniture. They are much rarer than the much more expensive Louis Vuitton trunks! A copy of the 1868 patent office documents for the Excelsior Patent trunk will be included for the new owner!
