Full-sized circa 1910 transport steamer re-covered in aqua heavyweight cotton canvas duck trimmed with tan leather binding. Trunk features vegetable-tanned-leather corner guards and twin vegetable-tanned belts with solid brass buckles sewn on by hand. All original hardware with working 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.
