Valuable Vintage Vuitton Under The Hammer
Carlisle Auction Rooms are offering someone the chance to travel in style with a rare Louis Vuitton Trunk for sale.
Louis Vuitton is a name that even non-fashionistas will recognize. A brand renowned for its style and elegance this trunk is expected to be hotly contested at the H&H Christmas Auction to be held on Tuesday 7th December.
Believed to date from the beginning of the 20th century, its original owner was a Belgian engineer who travelled across Africa and Europe and worked in the Congo for many years.
Although it has journeyed far and wide it is in remarkably good condition and with a little sympathetic restoration would grace any home. Measuring 80cm x 47cm x 37cm the exterior is decorated in the Damier canvas, with all clasps and lock in working order. Any prospective purchaser keen to know its exact date, can contact Louis Vuitton, who will be able to tell from the well-preserved label and design when it was manufactured, however, this process can take between four to five months.
Stephen Farthing Auctioneer and Valuer at H & H Auctions said “We are very excited to offer this remarkably well-preserved piece of travel history. It has already generated a lot of interest, particularly as Louis Vuitton is such a collectable brand. These days fashion is as important in the house as it is on the person, so we are expecting considerable interest.”
