Vintage Trunk Wooden Box/Suitcase Restored
Vintage trunk made with wooden suitcase restored.
Size: W64cm x D36cm x H22cm approx.
I found this vintage wooden suitcase in a market in need of some restoration and a lot of tlc.
I first sanded it down extensively to bring it back to its original colour and gave it 2 coats of bees wax to protect it.
I then painted the inside a vintage willow colour to give it a cleaner and fresher look.
Fortunately the suitcase still retains its original cast iron handle and closing mechanism.
The closing mechanism is very particular being made with 2 separate components, the catch and a S-shaped hook, which locks into the catch.
I think this trunk would look great in any room adding a touch of rustic and quirkiness to any space as well as providing good storage.
