I purchased my first zinc covered trunk over the weekend, it is 20 wide and 19 tall. I'm running out of room but there is always room for a small trunk to fit in someplace. For the age it is in nice condition, the exterior only needs a little cleaning up, interior I have to remove the old paper and make a tray. It originally had fabric lid stay so will replace with fabric rather than adding a metal one.
In looking at other CW posts for zinc trunks I've read that you use a lemon to clean the zinc. Once it is cleaned should I coat it with something or leave it alone?
Interesting latches on this one, under the latch is a small piece of metal that you move and it unlocks the latch. This is my first trunk with this style of latch.
