Vintage Louis Vuitton Shoe Trunk

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is a vintage Louis Vuitton shoe trunk from around 1950. The owner purchased this from an antique store in London during the 1970s. This trunk has great character and is a unique piece in the trunk collection. Rarely do you see these types of trays from this era in such good condition, as these predate the beige panels in more modern pieces. Trays were likely for men'e and women's footwear . Brass hardware has signs of patina, with proper care and service the brass could be restored to it's original luster. One can only imagine the stories behind a historic piece such as this, as the trunk was truly the first piece of furniture, I imagine it will continue to have a story as it becomes a part of anyones home.
