Our decorative pressed metal for antique trunk restoration is embossed under very high pressure, yielding great detail in the floral/scrollwork pattern.
Made of steel that's .020" thick, and it's 5-1/4 " wide.  Sold by the running foot.  You'll want to protect this metal with some sort of finish - paint or tung oil, to avoid it rusting up.
Pressed Metal  $15 per running foot, USA shipping included.

Our trunk corner metal is formed in a brake using pre-finished aluminium.  It's 2" wide on each side, 4" in total, and is sold in pieces that are either 28" or 36" long each.
Powder coated black with a matte finish; you can wipe on tung oil to get a glossier finish if you'd like it to look that way.
This is thin gauge metal; fairly easy to punch your nail holes through before you start attaching it to the trunk.
One piece, 28" long, with shipping to any USA address, is $15.  A set of 4 pieces, 28" each, is $50, 48-state USA shipping included.
One piece, 36" long, with shipping to any USA address, is $18.  A set of 4 pieces, 36" each, is $65, 48-state USA shipping included.

TRUNK LID DUST BANDING
Also known as Edge Banding
Metal for the lid of an old trunk
Edge banding metal, sold by the foottrunk lid metal band for saleantique trunk replacement metal for sale
Steel dust banding is typically used around the bottom edge of the trunk lid, helps to keep dust out of the trunk.  It can also be used as strapping to run across the lid or up the front of the trunk.
This banding is black steel, fairly easy to bend around corners, and is sold in two widths:  3/4 or 1-1/4 inches wide.  Thickness is 0.031".
We have this priced per running foot, shipping and handling are included for destinations in the USA.
This is not the same thing as the thin metal that runs up the corners of your trunk - this only is used on the lid or face of most trunks.  If you need thin metal to
replace the old stuff on the corners of your trunk we recommend that you scroll up this page a bit to take a look at our brass sheet or black corner metal.
Again, this metal right here is for the bottom edge of the trunk lid only.  Sold per foot, and only per foot.
Please measure carefully - Dust Banding MAY NOT BE RETURNED because we cut it to the number of running feet you request.
Note:  See the nice 90-degree bend in the banding shown in the last photo?  You too can make sharp, snappy corners
like this - just clamp the banding in a vise, bend by hand and then tap down with a hammer until you have a right angle.

Please measure carefully - Dust Banding MAY NOT BE RETURNED
3/4" wide Dust Banding, Part number 34EB  $2.00 per foot 

1-1/4" wide Dust Banding, Part number 125EB  $2.50 per foot
