Mid- Century Lane First Edition Hope Chest ~ Cedar Trunk
1965 Mid Century Cedar Chest by Lane Furniture Co.
1 in stock
This vintage Mid-Century cedar hope chest is from Lane’s First Edition line, a very desirable and highly sought-after design from the Mid-Century era.
These chests were often presented as a wedding gift. This was used for storing all the keepsakes and fond memories of the baby’s firsts, blankets, anniversary cards, photos and memorable items that you wanted to keep safe. This is where you would store it all away to later pull out and reminisce over in later years.
Cosmetically this is a remarkable piece, no significant wear to mention. You can expect normal age-related wear such a small surface scuffs and slight indentations, nothing to detract from the overall appearance or structure of the piece. I do not have a key to the trunk, however; if you decided that you wanted a key they are available for purchase on the ebay website.
Although lane cedar chests have been in homes for decades they have had safety concerns dealing with children climbing inside and locking themselves in with the old style locks that are on all cedar chests manufactured prior to 1987. There were incidences of suffocation inside chests. Lane has lock replacements available for all chests manufactured before 1987. I have requested an upgrade and this trunk will have a new one installed for the buyer.

Eye for Detail
My husband and I are always on the hunt for some great mid-century modern pieces for our home, and many of our best finds have been through Shelley! Her eye for detail, while keeping the mid-century modern simplicity in mind, is right on point! Always. Their love for finding a diamond in the rough and turning it
The Most Fabulous Finds
Iconic Mid Mod Décor & Restoration has the most fabulous finds! We started with one piece and quickly became hooked! Their pieces are fabulous, however, what really sells them is Matthew and Shelley. The craftsmanship they put into their pieces — along with their dedication to excellent customer service — keeps me coming back for more. The attention to detail, advice, searching for special items, shipping, and delivery makes purchasing these special items so easy. Excellent customer service, quality work, and beautiful items are the standard. Absolutely love everything we have from them!!! — Lauron
