Trunks dating to the late 1800’s to early 1900’s were made in a variety of shapes, sizes and styles.  They were made for men, women and children.  Many were featured and sold in catalogs like Sear’s and Roebuck.  Our selection of trunks vary; often we look for the rare brass bound Jenny Lind style antique trunks, and the flat top steamers, which make great coffee tables.   Here you will find our current selection of refinished antique trunks.
