Rescued this Taylor trunk yesterday from life as a plant stand...going to use it as a tack trunk in my new barn. It is in near perfect, original condition inside and out. Only thing missing is they key! The paper certificate inside says it was made in January 1908. I cleaned it w/Murphy's Oil Soap and bit of steel wool last night - with all of the dirt gone, it looks beautiful. Doesn't seem to need more than that for now, though, any tips on preserving it's wonderful condition would be appreciated.
Does anyone know if it's possible to find a key that would fit this lock? The number stamped on it is "C449". Thanks!
