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

Antique Trunk #499 - Remarkable Zinc Clad, Dome Top Trunk with Brass Lock & Key

This is such a rare trunk with a historical look plus a touch of a current industrial flare. It has a round/dome top which offers a great display surface. We have only restored a couple of iron clad trunks over the years due to the usual rough condition they’re in plus they are not easy to find. This beauty cried out for cosmetic help which we were happy to do.


  1. The top has a combination of both narrow and wide hardwood slats unattached with nails using decorative rounded heads. It really is a special look.

  2. The front also has wide hardwood slats. Decorative rounded nail heads are a great feature on various trunk locations.

  3. The cast iron handle hardware is original and in great condition. One of the leather handles is original and we replaced the missing handle with an older leather handle we were saving for the right trunk.

  4. We love the cast iron side flip latches. The manufacturers name is worn off the top portion making it illegible, but the bottom portion is etched "Patented Dec 22 1873." These latches are another unique feature.

  5. The fancy stamped brass lock is original and comes with a key.

  6. The bottom corner hardware includes bottom rollers.

  7. The outside has been finished with a Tung oil mixture and satin polyurethane for added durability.


  1. The inside is finished with a Tung oil mixture, offering a good storage area.

  2. The beautiful large lithograph is original and is titled "Forgiven."
