The beautiful Bela 'Vintage' Metal Trunk is definitely a prize discovery of ours! Being an original metal suitcase from Newton, Shakespeare and Co in Birmingham it dates back to the beginning of the 1800's(maybe even earlier) and it is not only a collectable but has ample space inside to fit anything from clothes to books or it can even be used as a holiday suitcase, like that with which Ghandi traveled with on his trips through India on Western Railways.This piece harks back to a golden age of travel.
Vintage luggage encapsulates the glamor and decadence of a bygone era when journeying to a foreign land involved adventure, romance and style.
These exquisitely crafted pieces evoke a time when the journey was as important as the destination.
It consists of three fully functional metal clasps and has a wonderful colour with the markings of a suitcase that has travelled the world. It would make a great feature in a living room, bedroom or even in a study. These distinctive old travel trunks would make unusual storage trunks above a wardrobe or at the end of a bed as well.
It is a limited edition piece so be aware that once its gone..its gone!
