About

Dating back to pre medieval times, the trunk remains an evocative staple in travel and design. In recent years, the steamer trunk is a timeless accessory for personal treasures we collect throughout our lives. We intimately gather memories that can be decoratively stored in a gilded time capsule, adorned in 24-karat gold leaf by artist, Chanel Verdult. A series of one of a kind found objects in antiquit are hand restored and refinished by the artist. The vintage ruby red and gleaming 24-karat gold large trunk can be decoratively staged in an interior, used for functional storage or stacked to created a layered precious metal look. This unusual trunk completely covered in gold creates a statement piece in any space, full of light and structure its sure to turn heads. Chanel Verdult is a multi-sensorial artist shaping alternative atmospheres through mediums of painting, modern-day sculpture, installation, performance, poetry, light and sound. Stemming from her upbringing, which was heavily influenced by antiquity in classical arts, she was raised in a gallery from near birth by jewelers and art collectors. Although her studies started at the early time of being around a gallery, Verdult pursued education in Art History at American University in Washington D.C., where her paintings were exhibited at the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center. Verdult then followed a desire to discover fashion design at Parsons in New York City, where she further honed her artistic skills. Measures approximately: 30" wide x 12" high x 16" deep.
