Check this out! This is an original 1870 Louis Vuitton Striped Canvas “Steamer Trunk”! Louis Vuitton originally produced this trunk to protect his work against imitation. In 1872 it was created with red and white canvas, then later Louis Vuitton began using beige and brown. This pattern is known as the Rayee canvas, “Striped” Canvas in French. Take care to notice how different the locks are! The original locks and accessories were not adorned with LV as it was not yet a trademark company.
What is extremely noticeable is the red accented interior, quite a special find!
