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

Antique Trunk #548 - Gorgeous, Large Metal Embossed Trunk

Whenever I have the pleasure to work on metal embossed trunk I always ask myself, “Why did they ever paint these works of art?” By removing all the paint, the beautiful floral pattern comes to life . . . just awesome craftsmanship. Since dome top trunks were designed for the wealthier traveler, they always found themselves on the top of the pile of trunks for safe keeping. This is simply a gorgeous trunk.


  1. All the hardware is original except for the handle hardware. Since one was missing, we replaced them with antique trunk hardware we were saving.

  2. The beautiful embossed metal pattern is identified as Petal Pushers.

  3. The hardwood top slats and front and back flat slats are all in great condition. They are attached with gorgeous wide decorative hardware. The curved hardwood slats were steamed, formed, and dried to follow the contour of the dome top.

  4. The replacement leather handles are from

  5. The lock works great and comes with a key. Its etched YALE & TOWNE MFG CO CONN U.S.A.

  6. The bottom has four built-in rollers to help with mobility empty or full.

  7. The outside is finished with satin Polyurethane and then has been hand-rubbed for added softness.


  1. The inside is finished with satin polyurethane, so it's ready to use for storage.

This trunk measures 36 inches wide, 20.25 inches front to back, and 25.5 inches tall at its tallest point.

The price includes insurance, packaging, and shipping to any of the 48 contiguous states (Ca: 1880s). This will be a very expensive trunk to ship due to its size and weight, but we simply had to restore it. If you're west of the Mississippi please add $50 to the cost.
