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

Antique Trunk #654 - Medium Size Trunk with Leatherette Trim, Yale Lock & Key

Here's a beautiful 1880s trunk. The color of the trunk with the same color tone leatherette makes this a stunning piece of history.

The original lock was broken, so I replaced it with a Yale Lock from the same era that I was saving for just this situation. It looks great! I also did not add straps, since the trunk's beauty was being hidden under the straps. I felt that the trunk was compete without them.


  1. The wood has a lot of character with numerous beautiful knots.

  2. Leatherette Trim and leatherette built-in center strap: the leatherette is in great condition and is attached with large, rounded nail heads offering a nice contrast.

  3. Large hasps include built-in lifts, making it easier to raise the lid.

  4. The unique guides, located on each side of the lock, were designed to line up the trunk top and bottom, adding more security during travel. They really are beautiful!

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

  6. The Yale Lock works great and comes with a key. It's etched "YALE YALE & TOWNE MFG. CO. STAMFORD, CONN USA."

  7. Where the top and body of the trunk meet, the edges are protected with beautiful, fancy wraparound hardware.

  8. The protective hardware wrapped around the center of each hardwood slat added extra protection during this trunk's years of travel. Most trunks don't have this feature, so it's a wonderful addition that offers both function and beauty.


  1. We replaced the missing lid stay which holds the top securely in place when open.

This trunk measures 31 inches wide, 18.5 inches front to back, and 21 inches tall. Measurements include hardware.

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.

Our price includes insurance, packaging, and shipping to any of the 48 contiguous states. If you are west of the Mississippi, please add $50 to the price.
