Hi all! Just picked up my first trunk ever! Any good tips on determining age? Not for value or anything. Just curious as I learn what I’m seeing. I am hoping to clean this piece up in the proper way and I would like to learn a bit more before I start anything. Covered in a canvas that is in fairly good shape. No
Big rips anyway. Began to veeeeeeeery gently clean the dirt from one spot with water and a soft rag, and the dark green color was clearly very delicate. Metal along the whole underside of the trunk.
So yeah, any thoughts or good websites to go to for aging and/or restoration tips? Happy to describe more if anyone has thoughts or questions!
