M104 - Cast Iron Grape Slat Clamps (5)


A set of five (5) rare trunk slat clamps in the 1884 patent grape and vine design. These are very detailed cast malleable iron, heavy and strong with no damage or breaks. Each piece was carefully cleaned and can be used as-is, buffed, or painted. These are as they were removed from a high quality trunk. They measure 3 1/4" by 3 1/4" wide. There are six holes for nails on each piece. Two of the holes are for the round head nails which will look like the grapes. These are wide enough to fit across slats up to 2 1/2" wide.

These were patented in 1884 by Samuel Hermann of Cincinnati, and were used by the Drucker trunk company of Cincinnati on some high quality trunks. It is hard to see from the pictures, but the clamps are marked, "PAT. June 17, 1884". A copy of the clamp patent document will be included. The patent includes drawings of these grape clamps along with acorn and rose designs which have not been found. These clamps are very hard to find. They would look great across the top or front slats of any high quality trunk!

PLEASE NOTE: These were used on the center of top cross slats and front vertical slats. Many trunks had 5 top slats and vertical slats on the front. This is for the 5 clamps shown in the picture below.

Price: $79.95 for set of 5 iron slat clamps, includes postage ($7) in the continental U.S. only. Email me for the shipping cost to other countries. Thanks
