Antique Louis Vuitton Steamer Trunk Monogram Canvas with Inserts Early 20th C
Authentic, antique Louis Vuitton monogram canvas steamer trunk from the early 20th C. Woven canvas, metal trim, leather handles with four wheels at the bottom. A key is included which still works to lock the primary latch. Three canvas & wood storage inserts are included. It measures 36in L x 20in H x 20in D, making it perfect for use as home decor and interior design. CONDITION REPORT : Note that over the years, the exterior canvas had been painted with a dark varnish which covered up the LV monogram pattern. We used a mix of vinegar & water to gently remove most of the old "paint", and then applied a thin coat of Tung Oil, which has helped to better show the original LV monogram pattern. With that said, this antique (approximately 100 yrs old) has DEFINITE signs of use/wear : numerous digs/rubs/abrasions/holes/stains to the exterior canvas. The trunk bottom shows a patch repair (pics 4 & 10). Metal trim is dented & missing paint in some places. One of the wooden supports shows a crack; the remainder show dings, chips, staining, darkening. Some LV-stamped nail heads are missing. Leather handles are cracked, patina'd & stained, but functional. Interior is stained with several fabric patches, likely added by an original owner over the years (pics 6 & 7).
The three storage inserts are yellowed/spotted from age (pic 8). The interior retains the scent of tobacco (likely was used to hold cigars over the years).
