Midcentury standard metal-over-wood transport steamer with deep rust patina in hues of blue and reddish brown, coated with multiple tung-oil applications. Brass-plated hardware, brass sheet edging, and brown leather front and top center accent with large brass plated rivets. Working brass plated lock and key. Interior is lined in tan 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.
