Harrods' Krug Trunk: The $54,000 Question

Luxury Gifts: Harrods' Krug Trunk is a very limited-edition item, as there are only 30 available. Although it is attractive and sturdy, this trunk may be just a tad ostentatious priced at over $54,000. The Krug ensemble consists of a trunk, an ice bucket and three bottles Krug Grande Cuvee champagne. However, the removable trunk lid does have dual functionality. It also can be used as a table. Additionally, the trunk lid can be custom monogrammed to add a personal touch. "Handle with Extreme Care" might be a wise monogram aimed at baggage personnel to ensure that it maintains its stately appearance.

The well-crafted traveling case has a vivid red calfskin interior, and there are numerous storage compartments to hold goodies. The trunk is very durable. Its corners are corrosion-proof, and the hinges and handles are "built to last." The accompanying ice bucket is an original design by the acclaimed designer Francois Bauchet. Among Mr. Bauchet's numerous accolades, he was named Creator of the Year 2000 at the Paris Furniture Salon. Bauchet also teaches at the School of Fine Arts in Saint Etienne.

Visit Harrods' website and click on Christmas and then Champagne Gifts for full details. The Krug Trunk is definitely a demonstrative statement piece. Whether you are arriving or departing, it is the $54,000 question of the holiday season from Harrods.
