Decorative edges are cast brass, and that means solid brass.  The plating won't fall off in a few years and leave behind a mess of rust, because there is no plating on these.
Some makers in the late 1800s used these to protect the edges of their trunks, but over time this style of edge became more decorative than anything else.
Nail them in place and then watch your shins, brother, because you don't want to smash it into one of these brass edges in the middle of the night.
Three-legged decorative edges, or four-legged decorative edges.  You decide.  Prices include shipping to any USA location
3-legged decorative brass edge:  $8.00 each  These are 3-11/16" long and the legs reach out 1-1/4"
4-legged decorative brass edge:  $10.00 each  These are 5-1/16" long and legs reach out 1-1/4"

Cast Brass Slat Clamp:  $8.00 each 



Slat clamps are the metal pieces that cover the ends of the wooden slats on the outside of your trunk.  You knew that already, probably.
What you may not have known is that we carry authentic reproductions of original slat clamp styles, and we have two varieties.  Both styles were commonly used; one is just a bit fancier than the other.
Each style comes in four shapes - one is for the end of a slat, plain and simple, the second is for use on a "T-intersection" of two slats, common on the lids of many older styles.
The third is called a 'flat clamp' and can be used on almost any type of slat intersection.  The fourth style is larger - called a top-side clamp, and is used when you need a clamp that both covers the end of a slat and bends down over the edge of the trunk.
See them all below, along with our replacement oak slats:
