Restored Martin Maier Trunk

This a rare style slat trunk that was crafted by Martin Maier & Co. of  Detroit, MI. The date of manufacture is from circa 1909. Maier was know for making superior, high quality trunks. This type of trunk is often called a “slat trunk” since the trunk is constructed with all slats.

This truck was previously restored in the 1960’s – 1970’s unprofessionally. We took this trunk back to an almost original appearance as it would have looked when first crafted. This style of trunk is very desirable among consumers and collectors alike.

  1. I purchased a large trunk for 75 dollars. It’s been painted inside and out and the materials used seem very thin. I’m afraid if I put paint remover on the oustside and try sanding it it will break apart. Some of the wood seems warped. The leather handles are gone and lock and latches are broken. There is an antique picture mounted on the inside lid. Is this trunk at all restorable?

  2. I JUST WANT TO DO THE INSIDE OF THE TRUNK CUT OUT CARD BOARD THEN COVERING THE BOARD WITH MATERIAL DO THE SIDES AND THE BOTTOM. USING SOME PATTERN THAT LOOKS ANTIQUE.
