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

Antique Trunk #583 - Gorgeous 1870s Large, Dome Top Trunk with Original Cast Iron Hardware and Brass Lock

This is a very high-end trunk originally covered with heavy leatherette. Once we removed the deteriorated leatherette, we discovered this beautiful wood. The wood has a deep rich color tone and is in fantastic condition. This is a combination of a stunning piece of history and a beautiful piece of furniture. The detail of the cast iron hardware is simply gorgeous. We traveled from Maine to New Hampshire to buy this trunk because we could see its hidden beauty.


  1. All the cast iron hardware is original. Each piece of the slat hardware is etched "PAT OCT 23 77."

  2. Dome top trunks were made for the wealthier traveler and were designed to always end up on the top of the trunk pile for safe keeping. This trunk weathered the travel well. It may have had a storage space of its own due to its size and weight.

  3. The beautiful brass lock does not have a key, but it does lay nice and flat. It is etched "STARLOCK WORKS PAT’D. MAR. 1869."

  4. The wide, metal straps pass under the hardwood slats, which adds to the overall stability.

  5. The #4 hasps have a waffle design and are also etched with a date, but due to its age some of the etching is worn off.

  6. The handle hardware and leather handles are original.

  7. The outside is protected with a Tung oil mixture and a coat of satin polyurethane to enhance its beauty and durability.


  1. The inside has been sanded and protected with a Tung oil mixture.

  2. The inside offers a large storage area great for blankets, etc.

  3. We replaced the missing lid stay with a large flat stay for stability.

This trunk measures 36 inches wide, 20.5 inches front to back, and approximately 25 inches tall at its center (measurements include hardware).

Our price includes insurance, packaging, and shipping to any of the 48 contiguous states. If you are located west of the Mississippi, please add $75 to the price due to its size and weight.

Price: $850
