Mognat of Paris Steamer Trunk, 4, Completion

This Mognat of Paris family steamer trunk ca 1900, has been round the world many times.  The heirs brought it to us to clean, stabilize the inner lining, create new handles, and to preserve the character of the outer trunk memories if possible — stickers!

This Mognat of Paris family steamer trunk ca 1900, begins here.
Test cleaning and prep for new leather handles is here.
Inside of the trunk is treated here.

A few images of the trunk before and after treatment:


The interior cleaned up nicely!



Once again, the steamer trunk will be put
into gentle use in the family home.
