Another addition to my hat trunk collection. This is a lady's hat trunk from the late 1800's to very early 1900's. It was manufactured by Liprosta, of Dresden, Germany. As you can see, their distinctive trademark logo was a pyramid with stork carrying a trunk.
The Liprosta hat trunks were slightly higher quality than most hat trunk makers. The Liprosta trunks all had lots of high quality heavy brass hardware and very high quality leather trim and handles. Built to last!
I own another Liprosta hat trunk. But, this one has a feature that my other Liprosta trunk does not have. The front panel drops down for easy access. I really like that unusual feature.
This trunk would have originally had 6 hat pin cushions inside of it, for pinning the lady's hats to. The clips are still there, but the hat pin cushions are long gone, as most usually are. Based on the age of this one, it's still in quite nice condition.
Thanks for looking!!
