Rare John B. Duguid Corner Hinge Wall Trunk
Circa 1893 - Original Canvas - Tray
|A very nice patented "corner hinge wall trunk" constructed around 1893 at the John B. Duguid
Trunk Factory in Toledo, OH. This antique Duguid Wall Trunk is not one we see often and especially
not in this nice condition with its original canvas that is of the heavier gauge and in exceptional
condition. The trunk is a large size 37"L X 24"H X 22"W and displays wonderfully.
Wall Trunks came about around 1880 to 1885, this particular one has hinges patented "22 Dec
1891" and the original makers label on the inside lid. They were popular because you could open
them while they sat flush against the wall.
This antique trunk is in excellent condition. It is a solid, well built antique trunk that will be around
for another couple generations no problem. The canvas is a nice yellow with the trim a medium
brown and the hardware black. In person, the brown trim and handles really provide a nice contrast
and overall it has a neat, quality look. Pretty cheerful too!
The inside features its substantial original divided tray that is finished wood and has been taken a
little darker toward a walnut color. The remaining interior is covered in a thick textured fabric which
The original makers label is firmly attached and near perfect.
