A NOTE ABOUT MY TRUNKS: I CHOOSE MY TRUNKS FOR THEIR INTERESTING QUALITIES, AESTHETICS AND ORIGINAL QUALITY OF MANUFACTURE. I MAY OPT FOR A COMPLETE RESTORATION, OR I MAY CHOOSE TO PRESERVE THE ORIGINALITY OF THE THE ANTIQUE. IN SOME CASES I WILL COMPLETELY RE-INVENT A PIECE. MOST PIECES ARE RESTORED WITH A DESIRE TO PROVIDE DESIGN AND FUNCTIONALITY WITHOUT DESTROYING THE SIGNS AND FLAVOR OF THE PERIOD.

EACH TRUNK IS A UNIQUE SIGNED WORK. MOST TRUNKS CHOSEN WILL BE FROM THE LATE VICTORIAN ERA FROM THE CIVIL WAR TO ABOUT 1895. THIS IS MY CRAFT AND OFTEN MY ART WHICH I HAVE DEVOTED NEARLY 40 YEARS TO PERFECTING.

I WILL STAND BEHIND THE QUALITY OF MY WORK AND ALWAYS PLACE MY PATRONS IN HIGH ESTEEM. I HAVE NO SET SYSTEM FOR PROCESSING MY PIECES. EACH ONE IS ASSESSED FOR IT'S FINEST QUALITIES AND THEN I APPLY ARTISTIC LICENSE TO HOPEFULLY BRING THOSE QUALITIES INTO THE LIGHT. IF YOU ARE SIMPLY LOOKING FOR A REFINISHED TRUNK YOU CAN CERTAINLY FIND ONE CHEAPER.

BUT PLEASE BEAR IN MIND THAT YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. I INVITE CLOSE SCRUTINY AND COMPARISON TO OTHERS. ALSO PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT I DO NOT DESTROY THE VALUE OF AN ANTIQUE TRUNK BY THESE PROCESSES. IF AN ITEM HAS EQUAL OR GREATER VALUE IN IT'S ORIGINAL STATE IT WILL BE PRESERVED THAT WAY, IT WOULD BE FOOLISH TO DO OTHERWISE.
