RD509 - 1896 Montgomery Ward & Co. Chicago, Trunks &Bags Catalog


Large 68 page catalog of trunks, traveling bags, and cases. 50 pages of their big selection of trunks including Wall Trunks, Bureau Trunks, Packing, Imitation Leather, Gents and Ladies Sole Leather, Fancy Metal Covered, Stateroom Steamer Trunks, Toy Trunks, Bonnet Trunks, Canvas Covered, etc., etc. Some rare style trunks are shown and many styles such as Monitor top, Cross Slat, large round top (often called Saratoga trunks), multiple tray trunks, leather bound, and others. This is a great catalog to see the many types of trunks that were being made in the 1890's, their sizes, retail prices and more information. A nice variety of toy trunks is shown, including Saratoga and flat top, barrel top, fancy metal covered, paper covered, etc. I've seen many small trunks such as these called salesman's sample trunks, but this proves that even very detailed trunks up to 20 inches wide were made as toys! Very rare to find this much information on trunks in one catalog. Also includes 18 pages of early telescoping cases, Gladstone bags, Alligator skin bags, toursist bags, and many others. A GREAT reference on antique trunks and bags! Excellent detailed pictures and descriptions with prices. Price: $25 includes postage within the U.S.
