Description
An extremely rare “malle fleurs“, or “flower trunk“ made by Louis Vuitton in the 1920s. These items are one of the rarest of trunks in circulation. Gaston Louis Vuitton had a company policy whereby no discounts were given. However in order to keep his most loyal Vip customers happy he created what is known as the flower trunk (or malle fleurs) in 1910. It was a miniature trunk constructed almost entirely of card/paper with leather detailing, canvas, wood slays and brass locks. It is understood that these trunks were presented with flowers inside and would include a small zinc tray that would protect the miniature trunk from the water of the flowers. The recipient of the gift would then have the opportunity to ask Louis Vuitton to transform the trunk into a sewing box, jewellery box or cigarette case. They were made in very small numbers and due to the fragility and size very few from that period have lasted to this day, especially in such great condition. A truly collectible piece, certain of appreciating in value. Condition In Great Condition - wear consistent with age, only very minor blemishes (please see photographs).
