In Response To: wood trunk (Linelle)

The trunk would have originall been papered on the inside and if you want to remove the wallpaper and replace with an appropriate paper that would be fine. The outside would have been varnished or more likely shellace over cloth. If the outside is in good shoape then a good cleaning is all it needs. Van Dykes at: VanDykes.com has replacement leather handles.
