    Hello CW friends!!

    I keep all of my French made trunks together. I don't have that many French made trunks in my collection, but I thought I'd group them all together and show off what I do have.

    Most are Ladies' and Gentlemen's hat trunks. But, I thought they all looked great together. I hope you do as well.

    Thanks for stopping in to have a look. Always very much appreciated!!!

    Scott

      I loved them individually and even more in this nice grouping!!!
      Bravo Scott :-)
    26. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      Thank you so much Kyra!! The French trunk styles are my absolute favorites, but I don't come across very many in all of my searches (that are within my budget). Thanks again so much. Thanks also for the love and for stopping in. Always very sincerely appreciated!!
    27. myoldkyhome myoldkyhome, 3 years ago
      The trunks are very cool and I love that piece of furniture in the background on right. So, beautiful!!!!
    28. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      myoldkyhome,
      Thanks so very much!! That piece of furniture is actually a Queen Anne reproduction. Not an antique by no means, but we've had it for many years now. Thanks again. And thank you for the appreciation and for dropping by. Always so very much appreciated!!!
    29. NevadaBlades, 3 years ago
      Great grouping, Scott. Especially like the dark brown on far left! [;>)
    30. Rick55 Rick55, 3 years ago
      Excellent photograph Scott! You presented your babies beautifully! Just one question... How do you get around the living room with these right in the middle? I'm just kidding of course :-)
    31. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      NevadaBlades,
      Thanks very much! That dark brown one on the left is actually real crocodile hide covered and one of my favorites. Amazingly enough, the crocodile hide in still in really nice condition and 100% intact. Thanks for the appreciation and for dropping in. Very much appreciated!!
    32. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      Rick,
      Thanks! We've learned to hop over them:) I actually keep most of my trunks in a spare bedroom in our house. One of these days, I'll build custom wall shelves and display them on the shelves. Thanks for the appreciation and for stopping in. Very kindly appreciated!!!

    37. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      SEAN,
      Thanks very much!! Sorry, no Goyards in this group. Still working toward adding the Goyard and the Moynat trunks to my collection:) Thanks for the appreciation and for stopping by. Very much appreciated!!!
    38. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      Drill,
      I want that incredible sign hanging outside my shop. Wouldn't that be cool!!!
    39. Drill Drill, 3 years ago
      It is cool one but thats's a new sign Scott,I'll take an old sign like Haskell's barber
      pole.

      Hey Scott, found a better picture of that Haskell sign with some info ( just zoom in)
      Wonder where this thing ended up?

    44. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      Drill,
      What an incredible Haskell Bros. sign. Can you imagine what that must have looked like at night all lit up? Wow! And it cost $800. Wonder what that would be worth in today's dollars? Very incredible indeed!
    45. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago

      P.E. Guerin still in business since the 1850s
      http://www.peguerin.com/images/historic.jpg
      these may be the blokes that made that sign.
      P.E. Guerin.com has the complete company history.
    47. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      That's pretty impressive that they've been in business all these years and still prospering today. That says quite a lot for a company's reputation.

    51. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      Drill,
      That's too funny! Very cool pic though. Funny you should mention the overload of trunks. We're actually buying a larger home within the next 12 months. I told my wife that she can choose the house, but it MUST have an extra large shop for me to work out of and have my man cave in:)
    52. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      Rose,
      Thank you so very much!! And thank you for the love and for taking time to stop in. I always appreciate you!!
    53. Drill Drill, 3 years ago
      I'm just amazed at that photo of your place Scott . Ok how long does it take to stack that outside .And what do you do if the weather suddenly changes to rain?Yes you do need a bigger place with all that out front. Obviously the wife needs to take control.

      Actually T-man might be in the same boat Scott, if you two ever get kicked out you could share a room?

    57. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      Alan,
      Yep, it could be a premonition for sure:) I do keep them thinned out by selling off trunks throughout the year. I move the biggest part of them throughout the Christmas season by folks buying them for gifts.
    58. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      Drill,
      That's really too funny!! As I told Alan, I do a fair job of keeping them thinned out throughout the year. I only keep the unusual and the hard to find trunks (the French trunks aren't for sale). The rest get sold, mostly during the Christmas season.
    59. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      Drill,
      I only have one trunk, that I've been working on for the past few weeks, in my shop right now. An Irish made round top wicker trunk. Should be finished within the next week or so, (quite a bit of re-stitching and leather repair was required on it).But, that's pretty much it for this year.
    60. Drill Drill, 3 years ago
      Can't wait to see it pal,I'm sure it will be wonderful.That type of work is incredibly
      hard to do on that particular style of trunk.Wicker trunks are truly unappreciated,
      many have not survived the trials of time.In my trunk surfing travels on the net ,I have come across many older pictures of trunks. It is fun to share with others and
      make them smile.I mean no harm,we all need to giggle at our affliction and appreciate their history.
    61. Drill Drill, 3 years ago
      Having said that, these guys are tired of carting your stuff around, they just want to know what room in the hotel ,are they supposed to put it in when your better half throws you out.

    64. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 3 years ago
      Very nice collection! OMG, I saw a hat and a hat box in person for the first time this week and immediately thought of you! It looked to be in very good condition. If I make it back out there by next Friday when the auction ends, I'll get a photo for you, if they let me... It was a very different top hat than I've ever seen, maybe because it was much older ??? The edges on the brim and at the top of the hat sort of flipped upwards to some extent. It was a beauty!
    65. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 3 years ago
      LOL!!! I just saw the comments from Drill! He's on the money!
    66. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago

      So good to hear from you!! Thanks so very much for the wonderful comment. I'd love to see the hat and hat box. Love those things!!!
