The 4 Hundred

SKU: CHUWOO133 Category:


Saratoga trunks are named after Saratoga, NY, a very popular vacation spot for the wealthy in the 1800’s. Definitely one of the fancier varieties since they mirrored the affluence and wealth of their owners.  Saratoga trunks were round topped, decked out with decorative hardware and leather straps. The graceful curve of the thick wood on this heirloom custom wooden chest make a bold statement about your personal commitment to quality. The smooth finish and meticulously crafted hardware compliment this cherished piece. Using the lost art of steam bending, these Saratoga trunks are handcrafted.  Premium pieces of quarter sawn white oak are hand selected, cut into precise dimensions, then steamed and bent into the desired shape for the lid, then secured in forms to dry. The trunk is assembled, sanded, stained, and hand waxed to a beautiful sheen.  Many hours are spent distressing and aging the wood to make it appear old and worn. Solid quarter sawn white oak, stained a rich dark walnut, lets the beautiful wood grain show. This rustic chest’s exterior is accented with reproduction hardware, including the very popular leather traps, completing the authentic “old time appeal. Interior is soft, supple leather accented with upscale tapestry in the newest designer colors.  Slatted wood bottom, special added feature is eight hidden compartments. Quality authentic reproduction hardware complements the exterior.   Complete with custom made
“Zeller Lock” , genuine leather handles, slat covers, and bottom guards. A Zeller Trunk will be a family heirloom you will be proud to hand down. Signed and dated by the artist, Chuck Zeller  Handcrafted Excellence!!! Dimensions 36” Long, 20” Wide, 28” Tall
