Vintage Trunk Wooden Box/Suitcase Restored

Vintage trunk made with wooden suitcase restored.

Size: W64cm x D36cm x H22cm approx.
Weight: 7Kgs.

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.
