1920's metal chest

I bought a painted metal chest with Art Deco detailing that I was told is 1920's French. I can't find any information about this sort of piece. Has anyone seen something similar or know anything about it?
The paint is worn but the chest still looks good and I have been using it this way. If I chose to restore it in the future who/how should i have it painted and how can I find appropriate colors?

You might try bringing the picture around to a few reputable antique dealers in your area who may have knowledge of this item.

How about "The Antique Road Show" next time they are in your area. I actuaslly brought a piece to them. It was a lot of fun.
