Tuesday Trunk Tidbitz

Presenting my fourth in the series of Tuesday Trunk Tidbitz is this wonderful Steamer in Damier Canvas. The Damier was invented by Louis Vuitton himself in 1888 and was the first to be patented. Well, into it's second century the Damier has retained its freshness and continues to delight Vuitton Lovers everywhere. It was resurrected to celebrate the centennial anniversary of the company in 1996 and has become a standard staple since then. In November 2006 a new interpretation of the canvas was introduced, the Damier Azur. The rectangular steamer featured here contains three interior trays and has the previous owner's initials stenciled into the canvas. A band of white and blue winds its way around the whole piece. Truly, a wonderful Vuitton trunk. See auction at ebay. Ended at $6500.00
