Antique box steamer trunk re-covered in deep blue 100% cotton duck canvas with wide brass sheet binding and slats of premium birch and poplar. Trunk has original draw bolts and slat holds as well as working hasp lock and key. Hand-sewn lid lift. Lined in red cotton.
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.
