I finished the restoration on this trunk. See posting from about a month ago for the before pictures as well as the fourth picture on this post. My original idea was to do a two tone paint, gold and red like it originally had but gave up on that. The metal on the back side is a little beat up so trying to get the two colors wasn't working out. Or it could be my lack of experience in doing two color paint job that was making it look bad. Changed plans on the restoration I buffed the old paint off, or should I say most of it, some of it wouldn't come off. In places you still see red paint, in the pictures it is real noticeable but in person it doesn't show up that much. The trunk is about 16 inches wide and 12 inches high, embossed metal on the top, front and back and wood sides. I left some of the interior intact but a lot was badly damaged so it had to be replaced. I love the doll trunks it is easy to have a lot of them and not run out of room.
