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

Antique Trunk #594 - 1880s Small Dome Top Trunk

This is such a unique antique trunk. Some folks may call it a half trunk, but to me it's more than that. The best description is that it's duplicate of a full-sized dome top trunk.

It has all the features and characteristics of the larger version. We have never had the privilege of restoring such a gem. It could have been used for a short weekend trip, or perhaps for shoes or hats for a long voyage. It's almost like a quality-built treasure chest. We have never seen anything like it . . . never! What's amazing is that the hardware and trim are all standard size; even the thickness of the hardwood slats duplicates a large trunk.


  1. All the hardware is original and in remarkable condition.

  2. The handle hardware is cast iron, while the replacement leather handles are from

  3. The beautiful brass lock is original and comes with a key. The brass center disc is etched "PATD MAR 69 & APRIL" (can't read the rest).

  4. The #1 hasps are original and the same as a large trunk might have.

  5. The wood has numerous knots and is a deep rich color.

  6. The corner bottom hardware includes bottom rollers to help with mobility.


  1. We replaced the damaged lid stay.

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

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.

This trunk measures 20.5 inches wide, 17 inches front to back, and 19 inches tall (measurements include hardware).

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.
