I just acquired a 1952 Philco portable that is covered in leather. The leather is in pretty good shape but I would like to liven it up a bit. Any ideas as what I could use? thanks

Shoe polish did wonders for my old Transoceanic.

try Tandy's carnauba cream for a soft finish...lacquer for a harder finish.

I like Meguiars Leather Conditioner on the black leather interior of my old Buick.

Neatsfoot oil is a classic, traditional choice for conditioning leather.
