Product Description

A genuine Louis Vuitton suitcase…

Dating back to the 1970s, this is an authentic Monogram suitcase by Louis Vuitton. Although nearly 50 years old, the suitcase has retained its trademark pattern and colours, and remains a functional piece. The suitcase is perfect for display as an indulgent piece, or it could be used functionally for storage or for that extravagant weekend away. Personally, one could spend hours just looking at this piece, as its so iconic with the trademark leather pattern and the Golden fixtures

Structurally the suitcase is in good condition with both zips working and present and the two original straps that wrap around the top. The original lock is included and hangs from the handle, but unfortunately the original key is not present with the case. That said, its there as a reminder of the quality build that Louis Vuitton put into each and every piece…

The patina is the most appealing part for us. The leather pattern shows some wear and tear which adds to its charm, yet the staining and areas of damage to the leather frame shows its authenticity. As suggested above, the suitcase is perfectly functional, yet there are some aesthetic imperfections. Notably, a couple of the corners show cracks and losses to the leather frame, yet these are not detrimental to the structure, or for us the look and feel

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The suitcase is good structurally yet the surface shows some scars, some abrasions, some tatty areas and some staining. The Golden fixtures show some wear and tear and as mentioned there are some surface cracks and losses to the outer leather frame. Inside is generally clean and tidy and unscented, yet there are a few tears to the fabric. Lastly, there is one small bolt missing from the right of the handle , as pictured (again not impacting the suitcases’ function). Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

A unique opportunity to own your very own piece of vintage Louis Vuitton (one that has recently been authenticated by Louis Vuitton)
