SOLD Mid- Century Lane First Edition Hope Chest ~ Cedar Trunk

1965 Mid Century Cedar Chest by Lane Furniture Co.


Out of 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.

Amazing Items, Wonderful People

We purchased several pieces of furniture, and some smaller items. Everything was just as described, and transported to us safely! They even hung out for a while and helped us put things together! Amazing items, and wonderful people! - Tara and DeWayne Keating

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 in to a showpiece seems to be a family affair — which means they love what they do and have fun in the process. Makes me love them all the more! - Kay & Gerald Janssen

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

A Brilliant Eye

Shelley and Matthew are a wonderful team with a brilliant eye for and love of all things mid-century modern. I am delighted with every item - from large furniture pieces to lamps - that I’ve purchased from Iconic Mid Mod Décor & Restoration! When I mentioned I was looking for a hard to find piece to fit my home office, they contacted me several times with possible finds. Shelley’s restoration work is second to none. Shelley and Matthew are lovely folks, extremely knowledgeable about mid-century modern era design, and as dealers they have absolute integrity. – Lora Sorkin

Shelley and Matt are Amazing

Shelley and Matt are amazing! They are very professional to work with and always find amazing pieces that compliment our home. We’ve purchased several pieces of furniture from them and each piece has been in great condition and we’ve never had any issues with the items. They are very accommodating in meeting to view an item and for pick-up. The Briggs’ are the go-to team for anything mid-mod! – Jeff

It will be our pleasure to help you find your next vintage or mid-century piece.
