Louis Vuitton Portable 'Whisky Bar'

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An extremely rare, special-order travelling bar by Louis Vuitton, circa 1980s. In effectively unused condition, the square case with top carrying-handle is in gold Epi leather, with gold-plated studs, latches and lock and original key.

The drop-front exposes the interior, lined in deep green alcantara and grained leather and fitted with compartments containing all a whisky connoisseur would require – a single, heavy glass silver-mounted whisky carafe, four whisky beakers, a Thermos-lined ice bucket and a nut or olive dish, all in Sterling silver and marked Christofle for Louis Vuitton. A stamped pair of silver tongs and a corkscrew with cover, completes the set.

The lock bears number 1079296, and the inner label is stamped Louis Vuitton, Made in Paris, 976517.
