    Here are 2 new photos of the Goyard exterior that I have been working on .The second 2 photos is the original uncleaned / stained canvas. Multiple cleanings with A good upholstery cleaner, followed by 6 coats of beeswax and orange oil helped to bring the canvas back to life. The slats were cleaned with fine steel wool followed by Teak oil to help put moister back into the poplar wood. Then generous beeswax and orange oil.. The brass was all hand polished and the metal was sanded primed and painted. Time to begin the interior. Thanks for looking.

      Thanks for the link Drill,very interesting.
      I'm currently working on a HUGE 48 inch Goyard
      for a customer
      What are you using to clean the canvas ???
    3. Drill Drill, 1 year ago
      Hey Ben,The fabric and upholstery cleaner I'm currently using is called "Tough Stuff'". It's a spray that turns to white foam (in a yellow can). You apply, let sit for 30 seconds to a minute and just wipe away the dirt and grime. It has taken me a couple applications and a boat load of rags, cause it is barn filthy with some significant staining. but I'm generally happy with the results.I have used upholstery cleaner in the past with Oxy-Clean and have see similar results. I have occasionally used a hand steamer to loosen some heavy stains. Just be careful you can losen the glue, Note: steam can sometimes re-activate the glue.I have used this technique to help re-adhere the glue underneath canvas and vellum to remove bubbles on the surface.
      Much luck you do stunning work so I'm sure that will be a happy customer.

      Looks great Drill!! Question: Was the latch and lock on this trunk originally black? I know in the original photos they are black but were they painted over brass at this point or were they a stock non brass metal make -up that required the black color? Thanks For the post and great job again.

      Thanks Tom . Stock -not brass, it's High gloss enameled steel.It's an awesome baked on finish too (common to the period). Incidentally the only surfaces I did not repaint were the lock or the latches. That paint polished up just fine with only minor surface scratches present.I did want to keep it as original as possible and I'm ok with "some age" left in the piece.Everything else was painted. The solid colored canvas tended to be used and more common in the late 1890s or so, before the desirable Goyardine pattern took over. The handles are steel as well, not brass It's more of a mid to lower end Goyard trunk. The steel corners have no brass nails. They are all steel , nor the edge banding. The higher end trunks have brass everything, including all the nails. I Really wish it had the trays.They will be impossible to find. A year ago I missed getting an 1870's round top Goyard with a gray colored canvas, with all leather straps. They are still out there but costly Easy come easy go.

      Thanks drill for the info. I didn't realize that some were just straight metal. I picked one up over a year ago but or some reason I missed doing my photos. I only have the original ad photos. Maybe I'll just post those. Thanks again and again great job, I am not sure how I missed this item when you first posted it, obviously I did.
