There was a time when porters were devoted to the care of luggage. This Polo Club Trunk by Authentic Models is inspired by the legendary Belle Epoque era when trunks were made by cabinetmakers to the exacting standards of furniture. It is handmade from a heavy plywood and pine frame, and covered with a canvas that is painted and waterproofed. The four original French trunk carrying handles and lock and clasps are all made from solid bronze, the maple protection strips are brass nailed and the faux leather rims are attached with hundreds of brass nails. The straps are real leather, stitched by hand in a saddle workshop. This trunk is designed for travel, but its durability will ensure it lasts a lifetime.
Practicality and Form
The trunk stands on four wood-turned plugs that make it easy on parquet flooring. It is highly spacious with strong straps, perfect for opening up and displaying objects of interest. It can also be used as storage, with the red lacquered trays inside serving instant needs. Alternatively, the lid can be closed and the trunk then makes for an ideal coffee or end table, its ivory wooden panelling making it ideal for a multitde of interior spaces.
All Aboard the Orient Express
This classic trunk recalls the days of elite luxury travel. When the Orient Express train service opened, it connected Paris with Istanbul and beyond. The more expensive sleeper carriages provided travellers with a private cabin and concierge who took care of their needs. Be inspired by the era of the Belle Epoque and Agatha Christie and transport yourself back in time with this vintage trunk...
