Tuesday Trunk Tidbitz

What a wonderful find from Saks and Company Fifth Avenue! An antique trunk dating from the 1920's. I can only imagine lugging this beauty around at the turn of the century. A mysterious initial "R" is embossed on the piece which makes one wonder who was the original owner and what station did he or she held in society. I think by that time Louis Vuitton had already established its name as a leading trunk maker, and this piece must've been expensive even at that time. Beautiful detailing of the LV monogram surrounds its border making the piece quite similar to what they have done to the my Vaslav's leather trim. The hardware is breathtaking and has that beautiful old world patina. I hope you enjoyed seeing this piece as much as I have and if you choose to place a bid, here's the auction on e-bay. LVoe it!!! Ended for $1,224.73
