Vintage Louis Vuitton Double 'Malle Armoire' Cocktail Bar and Humidor, 1920s

About

Louis Vuitton, Paris A magnificent and extremely rare double ‘Malle Armoire’ in classic ‘Monogramme’ Vuitton canvas, from the 1920s. Skilled artisans have sympathetically and expertly re-purposed this trunk to become the ultimate cigar compendium, humidor and cocktail bar. On the left is a single glazed door, opening onto deep humidified storage for cased cigars, above is a drawer for cutters, lighters and everything the cigar aficionado could require, and set into the top a vintage Dunhill humidor, a portable cigar tube by Asprey & Co. and a Sterling silver cigar cutter (all included with the trunk). On the right is a mirrored bar preparation area, featuring a removable 1920s Art Deco marquetry drinks tray fixed via magnets (included), a drawer for bar tools and recipe books, and two glazed doors which reveal a fitted area with recesses for highball glasses, tumblers, and two cut crystal decanters (also included). In the lower section is a drinks cabinet for bottles, with a fitted Art Deco ice bucket, and matching cocktail shaker. Each area is illuminated with a LED light, controlled with a remote control, and the trunk sits on concealed castors to enable smooth opening. The result of several months of expert craftsmanship, this year. Summary of contents: A silver plated Art Deco Ice bucket. An Art Deco cocktail shaker. Two hobnail cut crystal decanters 4 x cut crystal highball glasses 4 x cut crystal whisky tumblers A vintage Dunhill humidor A Sterling silver cigar tube by Asprey & Co, circa 1910 An Art Deco cigar cutter, with cross cut patterned handle Trunk size, Height 47 inches (120 cm) Depth 21 inches (53 cm) Width 30 inches (76 cm).
