While Joseph Hartmann originally started in the trunk business in Milwaukee, WI. in 1877 with other partners, the Hartmann Trunk Company was later organized in 1889 in Racine, WI. They made many styles of trunks including the large upright wardrobe trunks beginning around 1905. The first wardrobe trunks were wood with canvas covering and had rounded tops to prevent them from being stood upside down. Later in the 1920’s the round tops disappeared and many sizes and styles of wardrobe trunks were made, mostly covered with vulcanized fiber rather than canvas. Many special features of these trunks were patented during the 1920’s and 30’s, including special extendable clothes rods, special hangers, drawer locks, etc. The company used a variety of label styles and trademark names over the years including a shamrock clover, “Rite-Hite”, and “Triple XXX” Trunks, as well as the name “Gibralterized”. The Hartmann X and Triple X models were made to compete with a large competitor, Taylor Trunk Works of Chicago that advertised their “XX Professional” trunks.
