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

Antique Trunk #497 - Spectacular Medium Size Dome Top Trunk, Original Tray with Various Compartments, Original Brass Lock & Key

This was a very high-end trunk when it was originally covered with embossed leather. Once we removed the deteriorated leather, we discovered this beautiful wood. The wood has a deep rich color tone and is in fantastic condition.


  1. All the hardware is original except for the lift located over the brass lock. We searched our parts and found the perfect old lift.

  2. 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.

  3. The curved slats were steamed, formed, and dried to follow the contour of the dome top.

  4. The hasp/latch hardware is very unique. They are etched Patented July 1, 73 (which is naturally 1873).

  5. The wide metal straps pass under the hardwood slats, adding to the overall stability.

  6. We found a key, so the lock works great.

  7. Bottom corner hardware includes rollers which help with mobility, empty or full. Since one of the rollers were missing we added a wheel so we could preserve the original hardware.

  8. The beautiful cast iron handle hardware is original. The replacement leather handles are from

  9. The outside is protected with a Tung oil mixture and a coat of satin polyurethane to enhance its beauty and durability.


  1. The tray is original as well as the various compartments. The large box compartment on the right was used for hat storage.

  2. We were able to salvage some of the decorator trim, which is a nice accent.

  3. The top also has a drop-down storage compartment which is also in good condition.

  4. We added leather lining to the small storage area located behind the hatbox.

  5. The decorated storage envelope is original. Itís very rare to not only find one, let alone in this condition.

  6. The inside has been cleaned and protected with a Tung oil mixture.
