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

Antique Trunk #574 - Beautiful, Classic Barrel Top Style Trunk with Leather/Suede Trim and Brass Hardware and Lock

Not only is this a beautiful trunk, it's also a gorgeous piece of furniture! We have only had a few trunks with brass trim, so it's pretty unique. Most trunks are constructed using pine, but not this one. They used a very fine grain wood making it a dressier trunk. The fine grain wood and brass hardware makes a stunning combination.

Originally, this was covered with a very heavy duty woven canvas, which is why the wood is in such remarkable condition. It's a great high-end trunk that will surely be a conversation piece for years to come. Hopefully our photos capture its true beauty.


  1. All the brass protective hardware is original and in great condition. Much of the hardware is attached with nails using copper nail heads.

  2. The #4 hasps work great. The etched pat date is difficult to read, but it looks like July 1880.

  3. The original bottom corner hardware was contoured metal, but since two were missing we replaced all four bottom corners with similar hardware.

  4. The leather/suede trim is attached with tacks with rounded nail heads. The darker leather trim is stunning and in great condition considering its age.

  5. The replacement leather handles are from, while the brass handle hardware is original.

  6. We replaced the missing lock with a brass lock and key we were saving for the perfect trunk. Obviously, this beauty had to have a brass lock. The lock works great and comes with a key.

  7. The rear has four large hinges. The two outside hinges are mechanical hinges which help to keep the top in place when open. This is the first trunk we have restored with this type of hinge.


  1. Originally, the inside top lid had a storage packet envelop which was so damaged we had to remove it. This is a perfect area to add your personal touch by adding a picture of your favorite scene or family photo or anything you like. You may also decide to leave it as is.

  2. A lid stay is not needed due to the rear mechanical hinges.

This trunk measures 32 inches wide, 21.5 inches front to back, and is approximately 25 inches tall at its highest center point (measurements include hardware).

The price includes insurance, packaging, and shipping to any of the 48 contiguous states. If you are located west of the Mississippi, please add $50 to the price due to its weight and size.
