Circa 1980

25 ½" wide x 16" deep x 44 7/8" high

Renowned across the globe as the first premier luxury goods purveyor, Louis Vuitton first opened his doors in 1854, and among his first customers was the Empress Eugénie. His trunks were always impeccably crafted, with the finest leather, canvas and brass trim. Vuitton first made his mark with the creation of the flat-top steamer trunk and the wardrobe trunk. Flat-top trunks, unlike earlier rounded-top trunks, made cargo packing and stacking much easier. Many contained wooden hangers, and others even had portable beds! Thanks to the leather-lined compartments and hangers of the wardrobe trunks, travelers could pack delicate clothing without fear of damage in transit. To own such a trunk during the late 19th and early 20th century meant that one was able to travel abroad, something only the most affluent individuals did. A master of marketing, Vuitton passed his attention to detail to his son Georges, who created the iconic LV logo in 1896 after his father's death. This was ostensibly the very first designer logo, implemented to prevent counterfeiting. Illustrating this fact is that, in addition to a serial number and an original label clearly visible in this trunk, "LV" is stamped into nearly every piece of trim, down to the smallest rivets.
