Retro Make-Up Trunk and Mobile Dressing Table


We have all seen it in movies: those wonderful antique furniture items that are no longer for sale in the modern age, from clunky treasure-trunk style cases to sturdy hand-held suitcases. While the price tag may be prohibitive, this remade case brings a classic back to life.


In a way, this traveling case for carrying make-up and accessories (and that transforms into a dressing table complete with a mirror and drawers) is still a wonderful innovation, combining portability with in-place usability in a way few cases do these days.

While it is likely too fragile for air travel, if you ever do find yourself on an antique ocean-liner or a classic cross-country African safari you might actually discover that such a thing comes in handy.
