Travel in Style - Bag Yourself an Original Louis Vuitton (or Eight)...

11th February 2019

A remarkable collection of vintage Louis Vuitton luggage is to be sold by Lawrences of Crewkerne.

The Louis Vuitton brand was established in 1854 in Paris and by 1913 the firm had a retail shop on the Champs Elysees and added further shops in New York, London and elsewhere.  They developed trunks that were able to be stacked, they were lightweight, airtight and high quality and the label became a byword for dependable, timeless elegance and refinement..

“These items date from between the Wars and include two large steamer trunks, two large suitcases, and four smaller cases including some in plain leather,” explains Simon Jones at Lawrences. “These items have been consigned from a private collection in Somerset and all the luggage comes complete with interior trays and labels. Incredibly, each case still has its original key (in some cases 2 keys). Estimates will range from £300-£3000, with each item being sold as an individual lot.”

Simon added, “We have sold a number of vintage Vuitton cases over the years and they have always done extremely well in auction. But to have eight pieces of luggage from the same collection is very unusual and should attract a huge amount of interest from collectors.”

The luggage will be sold on Friday 17th of May and is included within the Collectors and Sporting Auction.
