What makes and antique camel back trunk a camel back trunk? It's the camel-like hump in the trunk's lid. 

Some of these vintage trunks have a slope that begins at the corner so requires a trunk corner that accommodates the increasing height. The T-131 is specially designed  to fit onto the antique camel back or hump back trunks. It is made from cast brass and has lovely detailing that will enhance any project.

Trunks were the suitcases of old and were subject to the same sorts of rough handling our contemporary luggage often faces on the way to it's destination.  Trunks were stacked, often without much care, one on top of the other by baggage handlers.  A theory as to why camel back or hump back trunks came into being is that he domed lid would make it impossible to stack.  Baggage handles quickly came up with a solution to deal with the newly restyled trunks and began stacking them on their sides.  Where there is a will there is a way!
