I like this, beautiful lining and Dormeuil makes great fabric, but don't know much about Black's:

and here's forum favorite CANTARELLI, replete with loro piana fabric:

This is a special order item, price new $20,000
I'm selling this trunk for $2900, delivery to be negotiated."
I wasn't even aware there was such a thing.

Does anyone know anything about these?

I found a few more examples of a similar design online, including an identical John Lobb one (that was made for Lobb by Hermes) that sold for $24,000 at Christies.

I really like the idea, and am wondering about making one for myself.

That is very sketchy. If you look closely, the pic is taken of a picture in a catalog or magazine. Although the sellers location is only about 15 miles from me... I should message him and ask to see it IRL before the auction ends..

True, but he acknowledges the fact in the auction text.

I'll admit it's a bit sketchy, but given how insanely buyer friendly ebay's polices are I doubt you'd get anything less than a full refund if it turned out to be fake or crap.

Still getting something like that for what 10% of what it fetched at auction...

Having said that it seems odd, is it supposed to be a trunk? or a piece of furniture? the Cristie's one doesn't look all that fabulously made, or durable enough to be a trunk.


I still think it'd be a fun project.

You know, I always thought a "Just Kopped" thread or "Stuff I think is cool but didn't post until now because I don't need you sons a bitches bidding it up" would be interesting for just this reason.

This thread is kind of in that spirit. However I like your title a lot more.

'Stilmacher', a member here (although he hasn't been around for a while) did sell that same shoe trunk, maybe five years back.
For all I know, it might have been that very same item. (There can't be too many of them around.)
