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. SOLD OUT of the 4-legged clamps - please check back!
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"

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:
Minimum Order size is $5.00!


Trunk Slat Clamps


Antique trunk hardware, slat clampssteamer trunk hardware for salereproductions of antique steamer trunk hardware
Slat clamps go over the end of a slat or where two slats come together anywhere on your trunk.  Plain steel, paint them or let them age (rust) naturally.  These have a nice 'step-down' over the edge of the slat, as shown.
Useful for slats up to 2.25" wide, probably shouldn't try to use them on slats that are less than 2" wide.  Priced at $2.50 each except for the big ones, the Top-Side clamps - those are $2.75 each, USA shipping included.
We have two varieties of these - plain or fancy, as shown. Your choice, and these ship free if you're in the USA and your order is over $5.00

Please keep in mind that we have a $5 minimum order size

Decorative Oak Slats

These oak slats have grooves that are similar to those found on many styles of older trunks.  Made from decent quality northern Maple.
Each slat is 2 and 1/4" wide, 36" long, and 1/4" thick.  We only offer them in this size.  You can cut them shorter as needed.  You can't cut them longer, and neither can we.
Stain them to suit your tastes, then attach to your trunk.  We recommend you pre-drill your nailholes to avoid splitting the slats.
