|The Trunk Makers Labels
|This collection of antique trunk maker labels spans 100 years from 1840 to 1940 and represents just a small
fraction of the trunk makers that have existed worldwide. Many antique trunks found these days no longer have
their original label or perhaps never had one. Either the label has been removed or there are many cases were
a trunk company made lines of trunks for resale through a retail chain. Often the trunk was not attributed to the
maker by agreement between the two parties.
I encourage the preservation of these labels whenever possible.

|I hope you enjoyed seeing a few examples of the trunk makers labels. It is common to find different labels for the same
maker as they tended to update them through the years. Perhaps down the road just a bit, I will include a few more on
another page along with other printed items from various trunk makers.
