Antique Trunk #634

Gorgeous 1880s, Medium-Size Trunk with Built-In Metal Straps, Working Brass Lock & Key

What a beautiful piece of history soon to become a family treasure! The thickness of the wood helps to make this a very solid trunk. It’s simply a beautiful piece of quality furniture.

The beauty of a trunk can come from its hardware or the characteristic of the wood. This is a combination of both: gorgeous hardware and deep wood tone with numerous knots. The tone of the wood compliments the dark metal trim.


  1. All the hardware is original.
  2. The unique hasp design and combination of narrow and wide hardwood slats helps to make this a special trunk.
  3. The brass lock is original. It works great and comes with a key.
  4. The top has a sight curve, offering a useable display surface.
  5. The metal trim and slat hardware were originally black, so we kept them black.
  6. The narrow metal straps pass under the hardwood slats.
  7. The protective corner and slat hardware are in great shape.
  8. The leather handles are original.
  9. The handle hardware is also original and has great detail.
  10. The narrow metal straps pass under the hardwood slats, adding overall stability.
  11. Since the bottom rollers were damaged or simply missing, we replaced all four so the trunk remains flat and moves easily.


  1. We replaced the missing lid stay.
  2. The inside offers a storage area.
