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

Antique Trunk #512 - 1870s Gorgeous Barrel Top Trunk with Divided Tray, Leatherette Trim and Working Brass Lock & Key

What a special trunk! I drove a few hours to purchase this trunk because I could visualize how special it would be once completed. The outside and inside is in remarkable condition for its age. This will surely become a conversation piece in its new home. Someone took very good care of this over the years of travel.


  1. The color tone of the contoured leather trim is a nice contrast with the wood tone.

  2. The leather handles are original along with the leather handle hardware. This is a sign of an early trunk verses using metal handle hardware.

  3. The brass lock is etched "PATD Mar 11 1875." Both the lock and fancy brass lock plate are original. The lock comes with a key.

  4. The darker oak slats have aged beautifully, adding to the authenticity to its age.

  5. The smaller bold guides located on each side of the lock help to keep the top and bottom aligned, adding stability during travel.

  6. The leather protective cap located over the lock is original.

  7. The bottom corner hardware is etched "PATD Nov 21 1853."

  8. The bottom rollers help with mobility when empty or full.

  9. Replacement short leather straps are from


  1. The original divided tray is in fabulous condition.

  2. The lithographs are original and quite different from most. Most lithographs were of women or pets, not men. Their clarity is remarkable. These are the first contoured covers we have been able to save since most are so soiled, damaged, or simply missing.

  3. The envelope located inside the barrel top was used for safekeeping important papers during travel. Again, these are usually missing or too rough to save.
