1940s British tan faux-alligator fiber travel trunk with steamed cherry-wood outer ribbed carrier and all original hardware. Features twin nickel-plated steel working hasp locks with key and single front center horizontal-swing handle. Lined in beige cotton-blend fabric.
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.
