need help with old trunk

Hi, I just found your boards. Today I was given an antique trunk in pretty rough condition. I would like to restore it. Are there any past articles, web sites or book recommendations (that I could find in a library) someone could give me?

I'm very excited about this trunk. It is the kind with drawers and wooden hangers, It still has the hangers and ironing board. It appears to have sat in a puddle as the bottom is a bit mildewy/moldy. All metal parts are rusty. I'm not sure what the outside of the trunk is covered with. The folks who gave it to me thought it might be leather. The straps are leather.

Thanks,

Keta
