One of the rarest Louis Vuitton trunks to be offered, this "malle haute" (tall trunk) is covered in the world famous monogram LV canvas. What sets it apart is that this trunk's canvas is not printed like the vast majority of trunks but in fact woven cotton. 

This example dates to the latter part of the 19th century and is a perfect example of such trunks. With its leather trim, brass studs, fittings and locks it still shows the same elegance as it did well over 100 years ago and is a testament to the durability of the best trunk maker in the world. Today it makes for a wonderful piece of interior design, both decorative and useful.

Condition: some staining to outside canvas and to the interior (see images). Structurally perfect.

Dimensions: 55cm deep, 70cm high, 110cm wide
