Item Description

A fabulous large vintage Louis Vuitton mail courrier trunk. The term "Courier" does not designate this as a trunk for holding letters . These trunks were designed to travel in box cars dedicated to baggage and in the holds of boats and vessels carring out long-distance travel. It is of early production from turn of the century (after 1896 with the presence of the LV logo, and likely before 1910). This is a well-used steamer trunk with worn patterned and LV canvas surface. It was printed with serial number 175097 and labeled with Paris and London locations. Original hardware is present and needs polishing/refurbishing. The bronze lock pad and handles on the sides are all impressed with LV trade mark and numbers. The trunk has deep patina and lots of wears throughout as evident in the photos. It is an authentic piece of history. It can potentially serve as a substantial and glamorous coffee table and also provide storage.
