Happy to have come across this nice old document box. As you can see in picture 2 -- it was in rough shape. Now the seller really wanted me to try to keep the old leather -- and I thought as a piece of its history I would give it a try. All of the old leather was stripped off -- rehydrated -- glued back on and the rest of the body has had one coat of tung oil so far. It still looks a bit rough but I love this look -- still looks genuinely old... awesome!
