    I was driving in the rain one day and was stuck in traffic. As I waited I saw this trunk sitting in a junk pile by the road. I was painted green and red. I took some circa 1850 paint stripper and removed all the paint and then I used a rotary drill with a brush and cleaned up the tin. I really love how it came out. It now adorns my brother-in-law's home.

      I posted different pics of my chest... think I have to get a "real" appraisal.
      Thanks for all your info! Looks like you have another winner

      Awesome chest! Looks like something straight out of a movie or a game, like it belongs in the ground or the corner of a castle, or end of a dungeon.

      Thanks for the imaginative placements pawpaw -- I am looking at it quite differently now -- in a way my basement is a dungeon! (my home a castle!)

      A finished example for Amada Rogers. This trunk had been completely painted red and green.
