Pair of ‘Malles Sécretaire’ by Louis Vuitton
Price Code: SOLD
An extremely rare pair of 1920s ‘Malles Sécretaire’ (desk trunks), the tops lifting to reveal the fitted interiors each with black pull-out writing slides, orange Vuittonite drawers and fitted boxes and baskets, the exteriors in LV Monogramme pattern canvas, and each with all-leather and brass trim, latches and locks.
Bearing hand-applied original owner’s initials to each, and about as complete and original as can ever be found.
Size of each:
Height: 36 inches (92 cms)
Width: 22 inches (56 cms)
Depth: 24 inches (61 cms).
Virtually unheard of in a ‘matched’ pair, the compact proportions of this pair of trunks makes them ideally suited for modern purposes, as side tables or occasional desks, and provide practical storage as well as great aesthetic appeal.
