Connie's Trunks gives tired old trunks new life from the beautiful shores of Sebago Lake, Maine.

Antique Trunk #461 -ATKINS & CLARK of Boston, Pre Civil War Era Trunk

This is an unusual size trunk in remarkable condition for its age. Originally, it was covered in embossed leather, which was dried and falling off when we found it. Now, it looks like a beautiful treasure chest! The manufacturing label is located on the inside lid. The top has a slight curve, offering a nice useable surface. This is a great candidate to be used as an end table.

Outside Features

  1. The trunk is made of pine with numerous beautiful knots adding to the overall character of this gorgeous trunk. It has tons of eye appeal…rich color tone.

  2. The front-to-back metal banding is attached/secured with nails with decorative original brass heads. Metal banding wraps around entire trunk, including the bottom.

  3. The short leather straps are replacements from They help to secure the top during travel.

  4. The trunk has an awesome fancy brass lock plate. The lock does not have a key.

  5. Leather handles are original, which is very unusual for a trunk of its age.

  6. Leather lift was missing, so we added one to help when raising the lid.

  7. Outside finish is protected with satin polyurethane, and then waxed and hand rubbed for added softness.

  8. Bottom is in great shape.

Inside Features

  1. Offers a great storage area.

  2. The inside is finished with satin polyurethane, so it's ready to use.

  3. We replaced the missing lid stay. Originally, the lid stay was a piece of woven cloth. The stay we use helps to secure the top when open.
