Hi all! I acquired this domed trunk with no knowledge about it. It's very eye catching but not in great shape regarding the hardware (the hinges are shot and the lock doesn't seem original and the lid lift is gone/ barely hanging on). A previous owner made some modifications as well with the wall paper stapled over the interior, a few bolts here and there that are modern and looks like part of the lock is new. But all said, I think it's still a lovely piece of history. Does anyone recognize it or any of the features? I really love the star relief. My ultimate goal is to do some restoration myself and use it in our home, but I'd love to get some input from you all as to its origins and what I should be looking at in terms of restoration. What do you guys think?
