This is a beautiful trunk. I wanted the blue one, and then decided to be frugal because I really didn't need it. Ok. When I decided to purchase, there were no more blue trunks available, so I ordered the red. This is lovely. It's a rose red, well made, and I'm so glad I waited - I'm certain I like this more than I would have the other one. And, it was so well packed, there's no way I could have re-packed and returned it!
