Cherry Hardwood Trunk

This trunk was crafted around 1895 by an unknown manufacturer. The original finish on the tin was “spotted” or “mottled” with a gold color. Much of the tin on this trunk had rusted and was flaking off. The tin panels were removed and the wood underneath was cleaned extensively. Cherry hardwood veneer was placed over the original wood to give it a clean and unique look. The inside of the trunk was cleaned and finished in cotton fabric.

One thought to “Pictures of Restored Antique Trunks – page 3”

  1. Can I temporarily remove brass hardware that is riveted on, how difficult is this, and how do I put it back on. Also, I need to do this to remove tin on sides and sand the wood.
