Louis Vuitton’s esteemed steamer

When 16-year-old Louis Vuitton arrived in Paris, he arrived on foot, a poor apprentice. At that time, the more privileged got around in horse-drawn carriages, boats and trains, but this didn’t stop their luggage from getting battered mercilessly. Such abuse drove many a customer to Vuitton’s master, Monsieur Maréchal, for help packing, crating and protecting their belongings. Seventeen years later, Vuitton opened his workshop near Place Vendôme. This steamer trunk from the 1930s features the iconic LV stencilled monogram on canvas, leather-top handles, brass locks and an interior with folding hangers, a shoe section and two removable suitcases.
