Large dome top leather covered trunk, it measures 37 inches wide by 22 and it is 28 at the tallest point. I've had this one for about 30 years. It was a gift from my mom, she ran an antique shop for years, she would restore items for sale as well as give items to family members. The leather on this one she left intact because it was in very nice condition. She painted the metal bands black, the nail heads yellow and wallpapered the interior as well as the original tray. Over the years the leather has dried out so looking for advice on which leather conditioner to use. Also need advice on replacing the torn sections, should I leave as is or get some leather and replace it? Need advice on where to get leather, what glue to use stuff like that. All of my restoration projects to date have been to remove the leather, this would be my first attempt at saving it.
