Hello! I am new to collecting and I was helping a woman clean her house to go live in an RV. She had a smaller trunk that I asked a few questions about which lead to her saying " I have another in the garage and you can have both". So at the end of the day I proceed to the garage not sure what to excpect. She showed me where it was and I literally had to dig through piles to get to it and it was so heavy. I didn't even know they made dresser trunks, but I did know it was special. So it's completely intact with oak slats running from back, top, and front. It has 2 markings of Henry Likly & Co. I have done my research on his company but have yet to see another like it. The closest is trunkman's dresser trunk. The bottom had a hidden secret drawer. It still has all of the canvas inside and was light blue. I need to know IF, and how to refinish this?? Also any other info would be super! It's very spectacular and I'm thrilled to have found this site to share it and get ideas! I live on the coast and it's humid here, I'm worried about the canvas inside. Thanks all!
