Measures approximately 27" deep x 43" long x 24 tall. Beautiful interior Louis Vuitton Tag marked. 289 Oxford Street Regent Circus LONDON. One side is embossed with the initials of a prominent Cleveland rancher. I read that the first Louis Vuitton trunks in 1854 were made with this gray canvas, or gris trianon, that was covered in hemp oil.These trunks were very simple and elegant, and didnt have more elaborate signatures/artwork of later trunks. They were also popularized due to the fact that their tops were constructed flat, as opposed to the dome shaped trunks of the time... To allow for better stacking and storage.
