This one was a little challenging. I found it at a local peddlers mall for $15. It's rather large, measuring 42" long X 22" tall X 21" wide. It took me a couple of weeks to restore it, strip out the interior, exterior and reline it. In fact, I completely disassembled it and worked from the ground up.
I had to replace all of the leather trim, straps and hold downs. I also replaced the canvas covering on it as it was pretty ratted out. As you can see, it was in pretty poor condition when I took possession of it. It was a lot of fun and very gratifying when I completed it though.
I liked the size of it and this one is perfect for storing our winter and summer clothes in. This one would be a large packing trunk from the 1880s to 1890s.
Thanks for stopping by and having a look!
