M103 - 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 is in original used condition and can be used as-is, buffed, or painted. (These were often silver color when new.) These are as they were removed from a high quality trunk. They measure 2 1/2" by 2 1/2" wide. There are three holes for nails on each piece and the bottom round nail head would look like a grape. These are wide enough to fit across slats up to 2 1/8" wide.

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

PLEASE NOTE: These were used on the front vertical slats. Many trunks had 5 vertical slats on the front. They were often used along with the slat clamps in item M104. One of the M104 clamps is shown in the last picture to compare with the size of these M103 clamps.

Price: $78 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
