Louis Vuitton made his first "Trianon Flat trunks" in the 1860s, and this was the great start of Louis Vuitton. Because Louis Vuitton was the first to design the flat top case to be easily stackable.
Before the introduction of Vuitton's trunks, round-top trunks were used, usually to promote drainage, and therefore could not be stacked. It was the gray flat trunk of Vuitton that made it easy to stack them for travel. Many other baggage makers later imitated Vuitton's style and design.
To protect against the duplication of its appearance, Vuitton changed the Trianon design to a beige and brown stripe design in 1876 and shortly thereafter the damier pattern that bore a logo with the text " L. Vuitton déposée brand ", which translates into "L. Vuitton registered trademark".
Louis Vuitton died in 1892 and the management of the company passed to his son.
This case from 1867 is a case that should not be missing in your collection and is of great historical value. The case is in full original condition and is no less than 150 years old.
This unique specimen is by Louis Vuitton himself, Louis Vuitton was then 37 years old when this suitcase was made.
