19th-century fancy dome-top trunk with tung-oiled metal outer cover and brass sheet binding on all corner surfaces. Ornately studded with brass-plated tacks. Trunk features fluted oak slats, heavyweight cast metal original hardware, and a new old-stock working Eagle hasp lock and key. 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.
