Antique leather trunks and luggage portray a lot of versatility of usage and at the same time make great decorative antiques. With good storage capacities and chic appearances they make great antique embellishments.
Use them as coffee tables, centre tables, side tables, lamp stands or just stack up one over the other to make stunning functional displays. Making use of these old things in fresh ways will most often make great focal points in your room. There’s no question, these trunks and suitcases exude an inherent charm.
Trunks by Goyard and Louis Vuitton from the olden times are extremely rare to find around now days. Thanks to their timeless beauty and elegance, they have become very collectable and are amongst the most sought after luggage that was ever made.
There are a number of Louis Vuitton options available. Some still carry their original markings like this wonderful and very unusual, early Louis Vuitton antique trunk ( Vuittonitte ), created around 1860, and retaining the original label.
The labelling is the second earliest label that Louis Vuitton did (originally for transport). This beautiful and charming trunk would make an ideal coffee table.
There are also the classy hand woven printed ones that are extremely rare.
Trunks by Goyard are also rare finds and even these works very well as coffee tables, and also retain the original Goyard labels and lock.
If you cannot find a vintage trunk to suit your requirements remember you can always order a bespoke trunks from us as these too make excellent pieces of storage, stands and display.
