Travel in Style at Charterhouse
Vintage Louis Vuitton suitcases are just two of the lots in the Charterhouse auction of collector’s items on Wednesday 16th December.
“We always have an eclectic selection of items in our collector’s auctions ranging from medals to clocks.” Commented Richard Bromell. “Today branding is a big buzz word but there is nothing new there really when you consider the heritage behind Louis Vuitton and the LV monogram which goes on all their products.”
The Louis Vuitton cases in the auction were inherited by the owner who lives near Bristol. They both sat on top of a wardrobe for many years although they have travelled and been enjoyed as can be seen by the remains of British Airways Club Class tickets.
The French fashion house Louis Vuitton was founded in 1854 by Louis Vuitton Malletier. In 1896, the firm started producing travel goods with the iconic LV monogram design. Today, Louis Vuitton is one of the most recognisable brands in the world and unfortunately one of the most counterfeited brands too, which is quite ironic as the signature monogram canvas was introduced to stop counterfeiting!
The two Louis Vuitton vintage suitcases are estimated at £100-200 each in the Charterhouse collector’s auction on Wednesday 16th December which also includes medals, militaria, coins, stamps, postcards, model cars, trains and other toys.
Charterhouse is now accepting entries for this forthcoming December collector’s sale followed by pictures, books and antiques in January. They are also taking entries for their specialist auctions of motorcycles on 7th February and classic cars on 14th February.
