Antique Trunk #640 - Beautiful Barrel Top Trunk with Original Hardware and Lock

This is not only a beautiful trunk, but it's a gorgeous piece of furniture. The design lines are classic, crisp, and clean. I found this online in New York and asked my son to buy it and bring it with him on his next trip to Maine, so here it is restored.

The wood color tone is rich and a nice contrast with the softness of the metal trim. The character of the wood along with wood tone makes what would be two almost identical trunks look unique. No two restored trunks look the same. They each have their own natural beauty. Originally, this trunk covered with a very tightly woven fabric, which is why the wood is in such remarkable condition. This is a very clean trunk inside and out.

Outside

  1. All the hardware is original in great condition.

  2. We replaced the missing leather lift located over the lock. Without this lift, one would be tempted to pull on the lock to raise the lid.

  3. The narrow metal straps pass under the hardwood slats and are attached with nails that have large decorative heads.

  4. The hardwood slats are heated and then bent to follow the contoured curve of the barrel top . . . what craftsmanship!

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

  6. The lock does not have a key, but it does lay nice and flat.

  7. The #1 hasps work great.

  8. The unique slat hardware is in great condition. Out of all the trunks we have restored, this is the first time we have seen this particular design.

Inside

  1. The trunk size offers a great storage area for those larger items, such as blankets and spreads.

  2. The inside has been stripped of old paper, sanded, and finished with satin polyurethane.

  3. We replaced the missing lid stay so the top stays in place when open.

This trunk measures 30 inches wide, 19.5 inches front to back, and is approximately 25 inches tall at its center (measurements include hardware).

The outside and inside are protected with a Tung oil mixture and a coat of satin polyurethane. Lastly, it is waxed and hand rubbed for added softness.

Our 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.
