Vintage Seekers’ Trunks Evoke Golden Age of Travel

Original vintage trunks and suitcases from the 1920s and 1930s now listed on Vintage Seekers channel the glamorous era of luxury travel.
 
Aug. 10, 2011 - PRLog -- From the 1920s Vintage Seekers lists a green canvas steamer trunk with wood banding and brass studs, as well as a restored French wood/leather steamer trunk. Meanwhile, from the 1930s Vintage Seekers has a cream vellum suitcase by Finnigan of London, a label that was the British counterpart to Moynat or Louis Vuitton.

An earlier Vintage Seekers piece, a 1910s Bow Topped 'Pirates' Trunk made of canvas-covered wood with black japanned metal trim, shows just how robust could be before the age of luggage weight restrictions

Quirky vintage luggage items such as an early 20th century Austin leather writing case and a 1920s leather hatbox can also be found in Vintage Seekers’ Design category.

Beautifully crafted in vintage leather with brass fittings and bespoke personal touches, the custom-made vintage luggage speaks of age of luxury liners and steam trains. Luxury brands like Louis Vuitton specialised in creating lavish bespoke luggage items for wealthy clients, with some even able to transform into desks or dressing tables.

Strong and capacious, vintage luggage can make a statement storage solution or coffee table within a room if too heavy or valuable to be used for travelling today.
