Yours is a rounded-top (also referred to as dome, curved, and barrel-top) steamer or "packer" trunk, popular in 1870-1920. Yours will take quite a bit of restoration to bring back it's utility and charm, but it could be a worthwhile "labor of love" if you need storage!

It looks old enough to be real. A dealer can give you an appraisal of its age and value.
