2 Trunk accessories and jewelry
On a trunk, you will always find:
- 1 or 2 locks
- clasps (brass or steel)
- L-shaped angle brackets (protection of the slats)
- handles (on the sides or on the top, brass, steel or leather)
- bindings (protection of the edges, leather, lozine or metal)
- corners (brass, metal or sometimes leather)
The whole set of these parts is named "jewelry"
Louis Vuitton trunk, stenciled monogram, brass jewelry, leather handles, brown lozine bindings (second best)
Louis Vuitton trunk, stenciled monogram, steel jewelry, metal handles, black lozine bindings (third grade)
Louis Vuitton trunk, stenciled monogram, steel jewelry, metal handles, black metal bindings (fourth choice, the lowest quoted value trunk)
NOTE : Between an up-market trunk and a bottom-of-the-range one, having the same canvas and being in a similar condition, the ratio can be of 1 to 3!!!
