The 1937 Series
The 1937 Series is handcrafted from the original teak deck of the USS North Carolina, a decorated WWII battleship which is now a museum in Wilmington, North Carolina. Allegory loves turning materials with stories into objects you can use everyday, and this story is truly something special.
