Antique immigrant chest--rosemaled--Wax??
I purchased an old painted immigrant trunk--dated 1851, with wonderful rosemaling. I want to use a high quality paste wax to add luster and preserve the wood. I have had good luck with Briwax. Sorry the picture is so horrible, but it gives you a rough idea
Is there any reason that this would be a stupid thing to do?
I have done it in past with similar trunks
