If you like silver, this might be a great accent in your room. I would think it will cause some conversations.It turned out really nice. This trunk is fairly inexpensive compared to other high end restorers. This trunk is circa 1890s. After that timeframe the aesthetics were never as nice. The interior was stripped, wood bleach cleaned twice, sanded, golden oak stained, and satin polyurathaned. The exterior was wood bleach cleaned, sanded, stained, Rust Oleum painted, and satin polyurathaned. Plus this trunk has new heavy duty leather handles. Lastly the hardware has been highlighted in an antiqued silver. I kept the original inner lid picture. It covers the lid compartment. The pictures are always an interesting part of these trunks. Be confident to put your blankets or clothing inside this trunk.
This is a solid trunk. It was in good shape when i got it. The lock has no key, and the latches work but one doesnt snap tight. This is usual with these old trunks. Most people just dont disclaim it.
So in a nutshell, this is a really good looking trunk that needs to go in a nice room. My picture lighting is not great, but the trunk and the silver are represented well. There is No brownish haze on the silver.
They have done well by me. If you want a cheaper carrier, i will thoroughly wrap it, and take it to them- then its on you.
I just dont think its worth it. Unfortunately, i can not sell to buyers with no feedback. Any serious questions are welcome.
