This trunk has a monogrammed canvas stenciled, ie hand-painted, at the time.
With its leather borders and jewelery (lock, clasps, handles, brackets, nails) solid brass, it represents the top of the range of the collection Vuitton, what is called "1st series".
The hat trunk was used to store Mr's hats during his travels.
Its size is ideal and very easy to place in a hallway, bedroom or at the end of your sofa.
The monogram started at Vuitton in 1897 in woven canvas and then will be created, by hand, with a stencil, to reproduce regularly the drawings of his canvas.
