Very nice Louis Vuitton Cabin Trunk from the 1910s in perfect condition, protected by leather trim, the most luxurious and fragile finish offered by Louis Vuitton until the 1940s. There is also the iconic stenciled monogram cotton canvas, as well as brass jewelry and locks stamped "Louis Vuitton Paris". A red stripe is painted on the trunk, allowing at the beginning of the century to differentiate the different luggage of the original customer by his staff during a trip. 

There are also many shipping labels on each side, indicating a round trip between the Netherlands and the United States of America with the famous shipping company "Holland-America Line". 

The interior of the trunk is lined with a beige linen canvas, with an original pad in the upper part and a removable frame for storing clothes in the trough. The canvas straps and brass buckles are monogrammed "Louis Vuitton". Also note the Louis Vuitton manufacturer's label, with the trunk's serial number inscribed on the linen. 

Very good condition : Despite two long Transatlantic voyages, often a perilous adventure for luggage in the early 20th century, this trunk is in superb condition, with a very nice patina of the leather and the outer canvas. The interior is perfect - everything is original on this trunk.
