    Just finished redoing this doll trunk, it is approximately 12 by 7 and 8 inches tall. It has a full size brass lock with a key. First picture is what it looked like when I started. I removed the covering, refinished the wood, painted the metal bands, polished up the brass and replaced the interior and leather handles. Need to make a tray for it, as happens with a lot of trunks the original was lost over the years.

    With what is going on in the world I'm home a lot more so I have free time to enjoy restoring trunks, both full size and small. Hoping to have time to work on the small hoard of doll trunks I have. Will be posting more as I work on them.

    I admire the beautiful trunks that are posted on here and I've learned a lot from other trunk lovers. Stay safe and enjoy the holidays.
