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

Antique Trunk #540 - Awesome, Large Flat Top Cabin Trunk with Unique Interior, Removable Legs and Working Excelsior Lock & Key, Brass Manufacturer's Label with Registered Number

This trunk is such a beautiful piece of history. The brass manufacturer's label located on the flat top says L.GOLD SMITH & SON NEVER BREAK 27437. In fine print it says, "This trunk is registered against loss if the owner cannot be determined."

Due to this trunk's uniqueness, there are so many potential uses. Here are just a few, in addition to being a great coffee table (since the top is flat it's a great candidate for a piece of glass):

  1. Storage for holiday items hanging items in top tray and special bulbs or holiday items in bottom.

  2. Military shadow Box for hanging uniforms on top and memorabilia, awards, and medals in the bottom tray.

  3. Arts and crafts Storage in all compartments.

  4. Baby clothes, top and bottom.

  5. Great for a man cave. Collectible hanging items on top, with additional storage underneath.

  6. Possible gun and ammo cabinet.

This is the first trunk we have restored with this much unique versatility inside.


  1. Wood has numerous knots.

  2. Leatherette trim with rounded nail heads.

  3. Narrow oak slats include large rounded decorative nail heads.

  4. Hasps have built-in lifts, which help when lifting the top to open the trunk.

  5. Guides on each side of the lock help secure the top and bottom together during travel.

  6. Original leather handles. Handle hardware includes top and bottom hardware to secure the sides during travel.

  7. Excelsior Lock works great and comes with a key. It is etched EXCELSIOR LOCK WORKS NEWARK NJ.

  8. Removable legs to raise the trunk off the floor a few inches. By adding legs, there is now a place for your feet when using the trunk as a coffee table.


  1. The top tray flips up and stays in place until the hinge is released. Simply lift the hinge up slightly and it will release.

  2. The top tray also includes a built-in hanger rack which slides forward and then locks in place.

  3. Deep divided bottom for storage.

  4. Original tie down straps in top storage tray.

Both the outside and inside are finished with satin polyurethane so it's ready to use.

This trunk measures 40.5 inches left to right, 23.5 inches front to back, and 14.5 inches without the legs, 17 inches with the legs. All measurements include hardware.

The price includes insurance, packaging, and shipping to any of the 48 contiguous states. If you are west of the Mississippi please add $75.00 to the price since this will be an expensive trunk for us to ship due to its weight and size.
