Some trunks have a tray
inside that can swivel upwards into the lid when the tray is open.
These trunks will have a
piece of metal on one side of the tray or the other. and that
piece of metal is meant
to be caught on a bracket or catch that looks like this.
These are old original tray
brackets, from the late 1800s. Just spares that we found in trunks
that no longer had a tray.
They mount with a single
nail and swivel loosely. About 4-1/4" long overall, and about 1/16"
thick. Nickeled steel.
Tray Bracket $8 each,

Found these in a warehouse
clean-out at an old luggage factory in NYC. Leather tabs with the
female end of a snap set set into each one. Where's the male end
of the snaps?
Must be fishing season because
he's run off. These are original, old stock tray snaps, used for
snapping down the fiberboard lid of an old steamer trunk tray. Brown
leather tabs are
3-5/8" long and, at their
widest spot, they're 1-1/4" wide. Inside diameter of the snap is
1/4", so if you want these to work you'll need to find a male snap half
- we flat out DO NOT have them.
Sold in pairs, original
tray snap tabs, $10 per pair, USA shipping included.
