Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This captivating set of five antique suitcases by the legendary Louis Vuitton embodies the elegance and sophistication of a bygone era. Boasting the iconic "LV" monogram, each case is outfitted to facilitate meticulous packing. Three of the cases are fitted with original hangers and screens to keep clothing wrinkle-free, and two of these feature removable fitted trays for multi-layered storage. Antique Louis Vuitton luggage is coveted by collectors around the world. To find a set of period luggage by this company, in such excellent condition, attests to the superior quality of its craftsmanship.

Louis Vuitton is considered the world's first luxury company, and its luggage and leather goods set the standard by which all others are measured. To own a piece of Louis Vuitton luggage has always meant to be one of the luckiest of travelers. Since opening its doors in 1854, the company has consistently created the finest travel cases available. Luxurious and sturdy, Louis Vuitton trunks were also innovative. They were the first to have flat tops, which mean they could be stacked easily in cargo, and when Louis' son Georges created the Monogram Canvas in 1896, this iconic design became the first designer logo.

Features original owners' initials and manufacturer's label. Hardware, hangers and leather pulls all feature Louis Vuitton marks.
