Vintage Luggage Through the Ages
When you look at our range of antique luggage for sale, you’ll notice how much trends have changed over time.
Pre-20th century, when people travelled, they tended to pack large trunks. This is why when you look at old luggage for sale, you tend to see a lot of wooden trunks – either smaller ones called footlockers or larger steamer trunks. Rather than carrying your own luggage, they’d be loaded onto the train or boat for you. 19th century luggage is now in demand with collectors, as not only do these trunks have a beautiful vintage look, they are also great for storage in modern homes.
If you look at antique luggage from the 20th century, you see that over time, these items became smaller and more lightweight, so individuals could carry them onboard. Around World War 2, it became more common for people to use luggage sets similar to the ones we use today, and these vintage suitcases can also be highly collectible as they are often of a high quality and made in real leather.
