As you can see from the photos, this incredible piece opens two ways. Open the lid to reveal deep vertical compartments; open the front/drop down lid to reveal 4 drawers, each with its own leather tab handle (each stamped Louis Vuitton). As you can see, it bears the original Louis Vuitton label for Avenue Marceau 78 bis, Paris, France, though the serial number is missing. The locks and rivets are marked LV as is the leather trim around all edges of the trunk. The leather handle on the top of the trunk is marked L.
This trunk measures approximately 10" or 25.5cm high by 16.25" or 40cm high by 9.25 or 23.5cm deep. I would say that the trunk is in excellent condition, given its age and use. That being said, I would point out that: it does have a number of scuffs to the exterior (leather and brass); the leather handle is a bit dry, and there is some minor soiling to the interior drawers/compartments.I think you will agree that the bottom line is that this is a very rare and very desirable vintage Louis Vuitton trunk, that would make an amazing addition to your collection. Indeed, despite extensive research, I have only been able to find one other case like this one -- so don't hesitate or you'll miss out on this one!
