  1. I agree. Strip it! And they do all throw some kinds of curve balls. I’m sure you’ll make it look great!
  2. That is beautiful! I love it. You have the best luck! Can't wait to see finished version.
  3. Another beauty! I like that you didn't paint it. It kind of looks like a monitor top. Love it!
  4. Another beauty! Looks like a lot of work but I know it will be beautiful when you're done!!
  5. Wow! What a great find. This is beautiful!
  6. This is beautiful! So unusual. I love it!
  7. What a great little doll trunk!! It's unusual to find one with this much of the interior in tact. I can't wait to see it after you clean it up. I have several doll trunks but none as nice as this one.
  8. This is a real beauty!
  9. Another beauty!
  10. This is great! Not sure how I missed it when it was first posted.
  11. Love this! You guys find such incredible trunks. I'm so glad that you share them for the rest of us. I love the inside as much as the outside. It's beautiful!
  12. Very cool! What an unusual piece. I can imagine this sitting in the window of an old store luring in trunk shoppers but not taking up a ton of space.
  13. Love this! Great interior. I've never seen one with these types of lithographs.
  14. Great job, so far. I would never have guessed that you could use furniture stripper on leather. I'll be interested in seeing the final result.
  15. The trunks are very cool and I love that piece of furniture in the background on right. So, beautiful!!!!
  16. Another incredible trunk! You and Scott seem to have a knack for finding the most amazing trunks. Can't wait to see what it looks like when you're done. I always struggle with leather.
  17. This is amazing! I had no idea that a doll/toy trunk like this was ever made. I, too, have several of them and look for them on EBay all the time. I have never seen one of these. Thanks so much for sh...
  18. You find the most amazing trunks! I've never seen one of these before. Thanks for sharing. It's so nice to get to enjoy these beauties that some of us might never come across.
  19. Beautiful trunk. Extraordinary job of restoration.
  20. That's a beauty. I love the copper! I've never seen such a fancy tool chest.
  21. It is definitely gorgeous!
  22. Another beauty brought back to life with your magic! Great job!
  23. Once again I'm blown away by your work with leather. I always struggle to get leather back into shape but yours always looks incredible!!
  24. Oh my!!! I love this. What a beauty. You truly have an incredible trunk collection.
  25. Love the double lock, too. I'm sure you'll probably have it done in the next couple of days and it will look great!!
  26. Love this! You have an incredible collection. I have an old leather covered apothecary box. It's made a little differently than this. It has the dividers for all of the bottles.
  27. That is an amazing find! I have a few albums and all only have a few photos. Thanks for sharing.
  28. Beautiful!
  29. Nice job once again! It looks beautiful! What kind of leather conditioner do you use?
  30. Thanks for the comment on my moon and stars trunk. Yours doesn't look like it has the unusual paint colors that mine does. So, I'm going to guess that someone repainted mine. I love the lithograph o...
  31. No, Leventin, I don't have any more info on this trunk. I did get it refinished. It looks a lot better now and serves as a table between two chairs in my sunroom. Good luck!
  32. Amazing interior! It's very rare to see one in this condition. I have a few doll trunks in my collection but mine all need a lot of TLC.
  33. Great work as usual!! It's beautiful.
  34. Love it!!! Absolutely beautiful!!
  35. I love this!! Never seen one like this in this size.
  36. Wow!! That is beautiful. I haven't seen anything shaped like that either. It looks like a variation of a Jenny Lind trunk. Great work on it!
  37. I absolutely love this!! What a beauty. I also collect doll trunks for the same reason. I don't have any as nice as this one though! I rarely see them with embossed tin.
  38. Beautiful work!
  39. Amazing trunk!! I've never seen one like this. Thanks so much for sharing!
  40. That's a beauty!! Love the interior. Gorgeous!
  41. Very impressive work! It looks great!
  42. Beautiful!! I love it!
  43. Wow! I love this! I particularly love the embossing on the lock.
  44. Great trunk! Wonderful story!! I don't know what your "trade" in life is, but you could be a writer (if you aren't already.) I was a newspaper publisher, editor and reporter for 25 years before health...
  45. Another great trunk! Love the alligator embossed tin! I don't have one with that pattern but wish that I did.
  46. Thanks trunkingforfun! I believe that originally the valise was sold as a separate item entirely. So, you might have any style of trunk and then you would buy this valise to carry smaller items. It wa...
  47. Just beautiful! Love the bottom. Never seen that before.
  48. Really great work! Where did you get this lock cover plate? I've got a trunk that's missing this and didn't know how that I was going to fix it.
  49. Another good find! Happy New Year!
  50. Very nice! I have several of these and thought that they were called doll trunks. I got that because that's how they are referred to in the Antique Trunks book by Linda Edestein and Paul Pat Morse. I ...
