Please note, Condition 11 of the Conditions of Business for Buyers (Online Only) is no applicable to this lot
In overall very good condition. The brass elements with minor scratches. Lockplate with number ‘1246824’ and inscription ‘Louis Vuitton made in France’. There seem to be a minor problem with the central lock, it does not properly lock in place and pops out of the lock, hence this would need be checked by a professional. The two brass catches function correctly and securely close the briefcase. The leather handle with minor scratches, scuffs and old marks. Interior in excellent condition, with inscription ‘Louis Vuitton Paris made in France’ and number ‘1045267’. Two keys.
