Item Details


  • Brand: Moynat
  • Product Type: Trunk
  • Style: Victorian or Edwardian
  • Age: approx 100 years
  • Material: Wood, fabric, metal, paper.

Charming old travel trunk in original, but very well-used condition. Totally unrestored. This case is relatively clean inside and out. The body is a worn beige / stone colour and the wooden slats are mid-brown. The metal straps have a darkened patina. It has stored costumes for the last 20 years. Inside it smells faintly of lavender and old clothes. The hinges seem solid and the lid opens and closes smoothly. A really nice, neat size and shape - not too big, this is a good side table or coffee table size. A wonderful and rare statement piece from a desirable maker. Not many of these historical items can be found in such an authentic condition. Moynat embossed brass plaque on side reads: "Malles de Voyage, Moynat No.3, Place du Theatre Francais." The paper label on the inside of the lid reads "Malle Edison, Maison Fondee en 1850, J. Krogner, 11 Avenue de l'Opera, 11, Paris. Fabriques d'Articles de Voyages."

Approximate size:
710mm length (28")
490mm height (20")
430mm depth (17")
At some point this trunk has had extensive woodworm, but not in the last twenty years which is how long I've had it. There is a big chunk of wood missing from a slat on the top (see photo) and some huge worm holes all over the piece. There's a crack to one of the top wooden slats. Also, one metal protective corner is missing and one is damaged and bent back. The key to the lock is missing. One of the handles is bent out of shape. There are some rips to the covering fabric and past water damage (see pictures). Many of the nails are missing from the top metal straps.

Sorry, no 'Buy It Now' price, Auction only. More photos available. Any questions, please ask.
I'm happy for this to be collected or I can arrange delivery. International delivery - please ask for a quote before bidding. The quote for US shipping is a guess, please ask for an actual quote before bidding. International customs fees / tax / duty - buyer is liable. This antique trunk will be very well packaged in a sturdy box with extra protective cushioning. It's fairly heavy and large.

Thanks for looking :)
