Very large ornate trunk in original condition. Located this in an antique shop when I was on vacation, my eyes were bigger than my car so had to return a few weeks after and pick it up. Did a five hour road trip to get this beautiful trunk to add to my growing collection. The leather is worn and missing in a lot of places, I plan on removing the old leather and refinishing the wood. The interior is original needs some repairs and a drawer needs to be replaced but overall in great condition for the age. A label inside says it was made by Schmit Bros Co. Not sure what to do with all of the metal on this the lock plate looks like brass so will clean that up but the cast metal pieces hate to paint them but want to clean them up a little. Looking for some pointers on the best way to clean those. Need to replace the cardboard that covers the center part of the tray, any suggestions on where to get material to do that with.
