This was a fun refinish job - fun and tough. The brown canvas that was originally on the trunk was stuck on with a LOAD of glue. The trunk is slightly curved top and is heavy as a horse - about 45 pounds - I love the back hinges. Will be used for a toy chest for a family in VA - they picked the fabric and although not from the 1890's - I like the look. My 86 year old mom does the lining - quilts all sides and does an amazing job.
