Antique pine trunk tray taken from a circa 1890 trunk. The largest compartment is lined in fresh cedar, the other in burgundy suede. The back compartment features two lift-out dividers for storing larger items. Tray is finished with multiple coats of semi-gloss varnish and solid copper corner ends.
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.
