Randall Barbera original French-inspired steamer trunk with four-ounce vegetable-tanned and hand-embossed-leather outer cover over three-ply hardwood construction. Trunk features leather-covered dust band, hand-cut six-ounce leather corner guards, and two matching six-ounce leather belts with solid brass buckles sewn on by hand. Trunk has vintage brass-plated working hasp lock and key set on copper and brass plating. There are two matching premium solid brass reproduction draw bolts on the front, as well as a solid brass lid lift, and brass sheet reinforcements on all 10 belt holds. Handles are made of premium stitched English bridle leather with hand-hammered solid brass handle loops. The inner upper lid is hand-quilted; bottom of trunk is reinforced in tin. Cool, collectible, and fantastically versatile, these are trunks with a past--and a glowing future. Each wonderful antique has been meticulously hand-restored and repurposed as a one-of-a-kind work of art by Randall Barbera, who uses premium leather, rare woods, and centuries-old building and refinishing techniques to create the exquisite centerpieces here. "Punctuating the original design, and then taking it one step further to enhance its personality, is the ultimate goal," says Barbera, who spends a full six weeks on each. No two are alike.
