I started collecting trunks in earnest about four years ago. Since that time I have found many wonderful and interesting trunks. A Louis Vuitton trunk, due to their expense and rarity was always out of reach. Circumstance led however, to the purchase of this lovely trunk that I have restored. This one is early 1900's. The lv monogram canvas is hand woven. All the canvas is intact and it has a monogram and stickers from 3 hotels on it: The New Willard Hotel Washington, Hotel Arlington in Vermont and a New York Hotel that is a bit hard to read. It is a real joy to be able to fill out my collection with this classic piece of craftsmanship.
