Antique Graphics Wednesday – 1900’s Suitcase Trunk Advertisements

Antique and vintage suitcases and trunks are very hot items in decorating right now.
Not only do they look wonderful, but they make great storage as well.
These images of antique suitcases came from the advertising section of two college yearbooks from
1912 and 1914.  I love all the photos and advertisements I’ve gotten from these yearbooks, as they are
such a window back in time.
Here’s the 1st suitcase with the rest of the advertisement removed, with a slightly sepia tone added to it.
Here’s the complete ad as it appeared in the yearbook.
Here’s a different ad from the same company
that was in the other yearbook.
This is the complete ad.

  1. Those are so cool. I looking at old advertisements.

    I wouldn’t know what to do with these; but I’m sure you’ll think of something!
