Beautiful checkered trunk • With its leather borders • Its interior is original • And a changed brass handle • The presence of the Martel brass plate specifies its origin, the locks are also marked.
Indeed, we see the checkerboard appear on the canvas of the trunks in the 1880s.
Louis Vuitton used this graphic on his canvas in 1888.
Moynat also put the checkerboard on his paintings in the 1880s.
And each brand will create its more or less large checkerboard, with colors slightly different from each other, to differentiate themselves from the others.
We find solid brass, for jewelry, ie all the parts: locks, clasp, handles, brackets and nails.
The corner protections, called angles, are made of leather, a leather decorated with dark lines.
It is a trunk worthy of the big names of the trunk makers of the time.
