DESCRIPTION

Antique early-20th Century Louis Vuitton steamer trunk in the much sought after woven canvas (tisse'), circa 1900, restored to a polished metal finish and in very good condition, steel borders and reinforced wooden laths, brand tag on the internal side of the cover reading "Louis Vuitton I. RUE SCRIBE PARIS, 149 NEW BOND ST LONDON". Louis Vuitton only made the woven canvas for a very brief period, from roughly 1896 to 1900, as the (now relaunched) Damier canvas was being copied by his competitors. This is the very first monogram which was copyrighted and used ever since. This is a lovely early piece, becoming increasingly rare to find.
