Louis Vuitton Malletier, now commonly referred to as Louis Vuitton and operating under the luxury conglomerate LVMH, was founded by Louis Vuitton, himself, in 1854 on Rue Neuve des Capucines in Paris, France.
Today, Louis Vuitton offers a plethora of luggage pieces in countless combinations of pattern interpretations, materials, and shapes, but it all began with the trunk or "malle," in French. The very first Louis Vuitton trunk was introduced in 1858.
This steamer trunk is from around 1910, roughly 50 years later. It is 23 inches tall, 43.5 inches wide and 22.5 inches deep.
