Hi hoping someone can tell me more about this trunk - found it in my travels today at the Brimfield Antique show in MA. It looks like a Saratoga but it is very short. It is about 10 inches tall and 22 inches long. Covered in leather with metal bands and brass button nails. As you can see in the pictures the bottom is rounded like the top. Leather is well worn - unsure if I should remove and refinish the wood, which is what I normally do or try and replace the leather. Don't know if that is a task that a novice can do has anyone replaced the leather on one of these? Any tips you can share? I've restored a lot of trunks and see a lot in my travels to antique shows and yard sales but this is the first one I've seen this style in the size of this one.
