Antique Trunk #719

Smaller Size M.S. Casey Flat Top Cabin Trunk with Working Lock & Key

This is a beautiful trunk for that smaller area; it can be used as a coffee table or simply a display trunk. This trunk is a perfect candidate for a glass top so the entire top can be used with ease and for added protection for for years to come.

If you scroll through our customer gallery section, you’ll find a full size trunk with an added glass top (trunk has nautical theme display).

Cabin Trunks got their name because travelers could store their trunk in their cabin because of its size, which proved to be a welcome convenience.

  6. The front, back, top, and bottom edges are protected with metal trim and with rollover decorative hardware.
  7. The wide built-in metal straps pass under the five hardwood slats, adding extra stability.
  8. The replacement leather handles are from Note the handle hardware is on the side of the lid and base of the trunk. This style hardware helped to secure the top and bottom during travel. (We have to remember that these trunks were used for travel and then storage before suitcases were introduced.)
  9. We added removable legs so when used as a coffee table there would be room for comfort. Adding legs doesn’t take away from the authenticity of the trunk, it simply adds versatility.
