Louis Vuitton Shoe Secretaire, circa 1920

About

A Louis Vuitton "Lily Pons" Shoe Secretaire trunk, circa 1920. This stunning piece comes with its full compliment of 30 interior shoe boxes and two drawers. Originally retailed by Saks of 5th Avenue who were the New York agent for Louis Vuitton at the time. The interior is in absolutely great condition, seemingly unused which is quite something. To either side of the trunk are the initials "L.T.S" (Love's The Shoe's?) and these over the years, have become faded which just adds to the overall wonderful patina of the trunk. The handles are still strong, but hey, it's unlikely you'll be shifting this piece around a lot as it's quite a weight. It's a stunning piece with a great look and could probably be put to many new uses! The hardware is all intact and original, and the interior, as I've said, is so fresh. It looks like the leather pull tabs have hardly ever been pulled! The shoe boxes themselves are all very clean so, think of a new use for them! I should say, if you're considering it to store shoe's ladies, then it should take a UK size 5-6 quite easily. If you haven't enough to fill it yet, then I'm sure Mr Christian Louboutin can be of assistance in that matter. What's nice about this piece (along with the LV Lingerie desk I also have listed) is that you can have the front door open to have the interior on view, but you can have the lid closed at the same time. So, a perfect plinth for a nice bronze or a vase? As opposed to the earlier trunks, this one has fibre edging which is / was, much more durable than the leather finish they used to use. This wonderful piece is currently available to view in our shop on Sydney Street in Chelsea, London, Mon/Sat 10:30/ 6 pm and we'd be happy to welcome you!
