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

Antique Trunk #469 - Beautiful, Rare Dome Top Trunk with Working Lock & Key

This is the first trunk we have restored with basket weave metal trim. Usually wooden and metal dome top trunks have plain trim, either metal or leatherette. This beauty has a special antique look. The basket weave trim with the warm wood tone is a rare combination for this world traveler.

  1. All the hardware is original.

  2. The front top edge is protected with beautiful scallop hardware.

  3. Dome top trunks were made for the wealthier traveler and were designed to always end up on the top of the trunk pile for safe keeping, it weathered the travel well.

  4. The four curved slats were steamed, formed and dried to follow the contour of the dome top. Note the highest point is the center of the curved top.

  5. The lift located above the lock helps to raise the lid opening the trunk.

  6. The lock works great and comes with a key.

  7. The fancy #2 hasp includes a crown design on the top.

  8. The ends of the hardwood slats are attached with ornate hardware, just beautiful.

  9. The basket weave metal straps pass under the hardwood slats, adding stability for rough travel.

  10. We replaced the inside lid stay since the original one was in rough condition.

  11. Leather handles are original.

  12. The bottom includes rollers to help with mobility.

The outside and inside have several coats of satin Polyurethane for protection and then hand rubbed for added beauty.

The trunk measures 34.5 inches wide, 19.5 inches front to back, and approximately 24 inches tall at the highest point.

Price includes packaging and shipping and insurance to any of the 48 contiguous states. If you are west of the Mississippi, please add $50.00 to the cost. (Ca: 1880s)

Price: $650
