Picked this old girl up from a guy who found it in an old house he was renovating and wanted rid of it.
The pictures are of the trunk In the rough condition I found it. need to replace some slats at sides due to borer damage
And the leather is totally crumbly to touch.
Each leather panel has a different pattern.
Would like to replace the leather if possible.
Would the patterning have been done with pyrography or painted onwith a dye?
Appears to be Asian/Indian in origin looking at the paper lining not sure of age.
