Antique Trunk #457 - Gorgeous, all Original Crouch & Fitzgerald Trunk with Brass Lock, Inside Tray, Removable Legs, Leatherette Trim, Brass Hardware

Describing this unique and simply gorgeous high end trunk is difficult due to its detail so we'll simply list its features. Please note this is a very special trunk due to its size, condition, and quality features. Please call Connie @ (207) 693-1027 with questions.


  1. Manufactured by Crouch & Fitzgerald of NY (1839- 1870).
  2. Top is almost flat offering a great usable surface. This is a candidate for a glass top if preferred.
  3. Darker leatherette trim is in great condition.
  4. Wood itself in great shape since it was originally covered with leather.
  5. Corners protected with brass hardware.
  6. Large and small brass nail heads accent this beauty.
  7. Brass lock comes with a key and is etched Crouch & Fitzgerald NY (lock works great).
  8. Small washers include manufacturer's name.
  9. Original leather handles. Handle hardware includes C&F etching.
  10. Large fancy waffle design hasp includes C&F etching.
  11. Manufacturer's brass label centered on top.


  1. Original tray with lid and leather snaps.
  2. Tray can lock in place attaching itself to top when opening (optional feature).
  3. Original red ribbon design on lid with Manufacturer label.
  4. Lid stay slides into built in track locking the top so it's secure. To release the top simply pull the lid stay forward and the top will close.

General Information

We added removable legs, so when using this as a coffee table you'll have a comfortable area to place your feet. If you prefer, the legs can easily be removed. Adding legs does not take away from the trunk's antiquity value, instead it adds to its versatility (Ca: 1850s).

Both the outside and inside are protected with satin Polyurethane and hand rubbed for added beauty. It measures 43 inches long (WOW) 21.5 inches front to back, and 18 inches tall as pictured (13 inches tall without the legs).

Price includes insurance, packaging and shipping to any of the 48 contiguous states. Price also reflects the additional shipping cost when shipping such a long, heavy trunk. If you are west of the Mississippi please add $75.00 to the price.

Price: $950
