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

Antique Trunk #676 - Rare, 1870s Curved-Top Half Trunk

This is such a great trunk. It basically has the same features of a standard size trunk, but is half as wide. This is a highly sought-after trunk because of its uniqueness and versatility. What a great conversation piece!

Some historians may refer to this kind of trunk as a large hat box trunk. Originally, it was covered with embossed leather for protection.


  1. After removing the damaged, embossed leather we were very happy to see the condition of the pine body of the trunk (just beautiful).

  2. The darker hardwood slats offer a great contrast with the lighter wood tone.

  3. The original lock was damaged, so we replaced it with a brass lock from the same era. It is etched "May 11, 1875." It works great and comes with a key.

  4. The hardwood slats are attached with beautiful brass buttons. Metal banding, at the end of each hardwood slat, did a great job protecting each slat during travel.

  5. The replacement leather handles and small straps are from brettunsvillage.com.

  6. The cast iron handle hardware is original.

  7. The top has a slight curve, offering a useable display surface.


  1. We added a metal lid stay since the original cloth stays were very weak and could not hold the top in place when open.

  2. The inside offers a great storage area.

Both the outside and inside are protected with a Tung oil/stain mixture plus a coat of satin polyurethane, and lastly have been hand rubbed for added beauty. This trunk measures approximately 22 inches left to right, 18 inches front to back, and 20 inches tall at the highest center point.

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.
