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

Antique Trunk #580 - Beautiful HENRY LIKLY 1890s Flat Top Cabin Trunk with Leatherette Trim, Working Lock & Key, and Removable Legs

Here's a great looking cabin trunk which is perfect to use as a coffee table. By adding legs, you can now place this in front of your couch and have a comfortable area for your feet. The Henry Likly Manufacturing Company was known for making a very durable, well-made trunk.


  1. The top is flat, offering a great useable surface. This is a perfect candidate for a glass top to utilize the entire surface area.

  2. The wood has a fine grain and is in great condition, which means this trunk probably did not see a lot of rough travel.

  3. All the corners are protected with beautiful contoured hardware.

  4. All the hardware is original, including the lock and handle hardware.

  5. The large guides located on each side of the lock help to keep the top and trunk body aligned for safe travel.

  6. The edges are trimmed with a rich brown leatherette using nails with rounded nail heads giving it a beautiful look.

  7. The bottom metal edge on each side has a fancy scallop design; this is the first trunk we have seen done like this trim, simply unique and beautiful.

  8. The leather handles and leather tabs are original while the replacement leather straps are from

  9. The top edge protective hardware is the same pattern as the bottom strap hardware.

  10. The brass manufacturer's label is located on the top surface. It reads "Established 1844 HENRY LIKELY & Co Rochester, N.Y."


  1. The inside offers a great storage space.

The inside and outside are finished with a Tung oil mixture and then a light coat of satin polyurethane. The finish is waterproof and soft to the touch. If you choose to display a real plant on the top, you do not need to worry about water stains. Once again, this is a perfect candidate for a glass top.

We added removable legs so when using this as a coffee table you'll have a comfortable area to place your feet. If you prefer, the legs can easily be removed. Adding legs does not take away from the trunk's antiquity value, instead it adds to its versatility.

This trunk measures 34 inches left to right, 20 inches front to back, and 17.5 inches tall as pictured (13 inches tall without the removable legs).

Our price includes insurance, packaging, and shipping to any of the 48 contiguous states. If you are west of the Mississippi, please add $25 to the price.
