1904 World's Fair Trunk

"One of the most exciting restoration projects I was asked to do recently was to work on an old brown painted trunk. After meticulously removing the layers of old paint, I discovered a 1904 World's Fair advertisement for Buster Brown Shoes. (This was the same World's Fair portrayed in the Judy Garland movie 'Meet Me in St. Louis.')

I've only had a handful of surprising finds - like this one - in my three decades of restoring furniture. This rare trunk was very special." - Jason Ralph
