    trunkman

    I love finding the rare or unusual trunks you don't see very often. This nice little beauty has a unique style and shape. It was in rough shape when I received it but these trunks always seem to bounce back. the latches are different -- one has been replaced but the nice thing is that it was replaced with a period latch -- sorta like a cat with a blue eye and a brown eye. Enjoy!

      Great work on the restoration! If you don't mind me asking, do you use any power tools or is it all done by hand? [;>)

      Hi NavadaBlades -- I usually use a power drill and wire brush on the hardware if it needs it -- for this one is was a simple matter of taking off the old canvas and a bit of hand sanding and cleaning the brass bits... actually very little time for a nice turn around. Thanks for asking!

      Absolutely beautiful trunkman!!! What an amazing job you've done with this lovely French made trunk. Had you not have mentioned it, I wouldn't have really noticed the two different latches. But, they work quite well together. Very nice!!!!

      Js -- thought it was kinda fun that we both posted "French" today!! Thanks for the encouragement along the way... I am by no means a perfectionist but that kinda works with old trunks for me.
