This is a Louis Vuitton Custom Monogramed Boot Case with Original Key and Dust Bag. The pattern is officially knowns as the Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene Cavnvas, and it was actually created in 1888, before the very recognizable monogram pattern. The direct translation from French to English of “Damier” is “Checker Board.” This Damier pattern in particular is the “Red Damier” and it is a rare find as most people know this pattern to be in shades of brown.
The monogram R.S. can be seen on both the right and left sides of the boot case, representing the original owners initials. The outer brass lock and pins is accented nicely with the black trim and handles.
The innards of the boot case reveal the original removable shelf with colored lifting handles, below is the custom boot display tray.
Not only does this boot case have the original key and dust bag, it also has a Zinc bottom! This rare element was very much intentional in its production, thus in affect creating a waterproof sealed bottom of the boot case.
