Every once in a while I come across an exceptional trunk. This is one example of beautiful hardware. This is a leather bound trunk that has beautiful craftsmanship throughout. I am not sure of the proper term for it -- cross slat ??-- well it must be because it has a cross on one of its slats... This trunk has some French influence somehow as there are "fluers de lis" on the slat clamps -- the whole thing looks "Count of Monte Cristo" ish...A magnificent find at the cost of a regular flat top. Sweet...
