This is a beautiful, vintage, Louis Vuitton Travel Trunk with history. This particular item comes by way of New York, once owned by the fashion icon Martha Phillips who's clients included those such as Brooke Astor and Gloria Vanderbilt.
History of this particular trunk included a lot of travel and use through its time with Martha. The trunk has its original Louis Vuitton numbering inside with the original label. The metal hardware has the LV engravings also. The trunk should be considered in fair to good condition considering its age and extensive use and history.This was not a trunk that sat as a decorative item and traveled with Ms Phillips extensively. As would be reasonably expected for such a well used piece of luggage there are marks, areas of worn fabric, wood, metal etc, however these in no way detract from the beauty, structural integrity or overall value of the item.
This would make an excellent, historic item for someone who enjoys fashion history, a collector or restorer of historical LV pieces, or simply enjoyed by someone who wants a statement piece for their home. Please reach out for further info or pictures. Please also bear in mind the following.
