Look for "banded steamer trunk" on ebay. There are generally more to choose from on the UK site www.ebay.co.uk than in the US, and they are generally cheaper. But you might have to pay shipping.

To get rid of the bad smell inside, you will need to spray the old paper lining with a combination of water & vinegar. Let it set 5 minutes and then scrape with a paint scraper. This is the hardest part of restoring the trunk. I then used lemon furniture oil on the inside, let it set for a couple of days, and oiled again.

I used saddle soap on the outside since mine was leather.

And how would you make the banded and your lock shiny and do you painted the banded again or what did you do? What about the leather handle, what did you do with it?

Hey guys! What size/measurements would you say are closest to Harry's trunk or the trunks used in the film's? I recently bought a steamer trunk for this project and was wondering if it wasn't too large? I also found these photos for reference;

This is my trunk! I still have to add the decal to it and paint the initials etc :
