The Louis Vuitton steamer trunk with its monogrammed stenciled canvas

The format of this superb Louis Vuitton steamer trunk relates to the carrier of the time (1900-1920).

Indeed, the trunk was prepared by the house staff, to fill the personal effects of Mr. or Mrs.. Then the carrier (called courier, at the time) came to pick up the trunks (around fifty for a couple with two children ...) at home to deliver them to the resorts.

The yellow band corresponds to what is called: the stable band

It represents the colors of the family crest. This use allows carriers to easily group together trunks from the same family.
The stencil monogram corresponds to a period when the craftsman painted, with a stencil, on the brown canvas.

This helps to highlight manual work

"Handmade" of the time

The monogrammed canvas began with woven canvas, then stenciled, to be created today in screen printing.

The label of this trunk allows us to date it precisely between 1914 and 1924.

Indeed, the Paris store, Champs Elysées appears (created in 1914) and but also that of Cannes (1914).
