ANTIQUE 20thC RARE LOUIS VUITTON "MALLE AERO" TRUNK, PARIS c.1920
Antique 20th Century exceptionally rare 'Malle Aero' (Aeroplane Trunk) in the world famous monogram Louis Vuitton canvas with leather and brass trim, with near mint-condition interior. The 'Malle Aero' was designed by twin brothers Pierre and Jean Vuitton, in 1910. Designed to be light in weight, compact and versatile, the 'Aero' weighed only 26 kgs when packed with a prescribed list of contents.
The Vuitton twins were pioneer aviators and designed, amongst many other things, a primitive helicopter, the Vuitton III, shown (with the 'Malle Aero') at the fore-runner of the Paris Air Show at the Grand Palais in November 1910. A wonderful opportunity to own a very rare trunk which would work well in any interior space.
