    Default Help RARE Vintage Louis Vuitton!!!

    Okay so here is the story
    About 30 yrs ago my Grandmother was vacationing in Europe
    When she was there she gathered many treasures. One of them being a Louis Vuitton. This purse in *MINT* was stored since then. My mother was given this by my grandmother and then she gave it to me, because after all I am the brand name whore of the family But after much research I cannot locate anything that is like it!! I think it is a combo between an Alma, Speedy and KarryAll,.. PLEASE HELP

    The Monogram looks odd to me.

    I resized your pic so it wouldn't be so large.


    Larger:

    Can you take a picture of the interior or the date code? Just curious.

    Like ZG said, the monogram looks weird. You say it's authentic, but she could have just told you she bought it at Harrod's. This bag looks like a replica to me. The monogram doesn't look silk screened on and is too mustard colored, and the feet on the bottom look too big. The thing that is most throwing me of is the positioning of the monogram. It's uneven and the LV's shouldn't be cut off on the side.

    it was purchased in the early 80's they didn't do stamping then,.. and my Grandmother would not need to strech the truth on where she got it,.. it is almost 30 yrs old and it isn't uneven it is just the pic I can see if I can get a pic on the inside

    French Company didn't use date codes, but Louis Vuitton started using them in the early 80s. IMO I don't think this bag is authentic just based on the pictures. The LVs on each side should be even and not cut off as they are on the right hand side. Also, the leather logo on the front of the bag wasn't ever used.

    Funny cause it has been taken to A Louis Vuitton store and has been Authenticated,.. like stated it was bought in 81 or 82,.. It is part of their luggage line and yes 30 years ago,.. leather logo was used,.. in europe,.. French Company also produced LV and was trademarked as such,.. Now the French Company no longer has rights to use LV so,.. I was just trying to figure out style.

    Did you ask the Louis Vuitton Boutique, that authenticated it, the style name? Seems they would know better since I am not familiar with this style.

    Thanks for sharing. I love seeing vintage pieces. It's interesting how times and standards change for designers. 30 years is a long time in the handbag world. Were there even fakes in1981?

    oooops, I'm afraid not a rare vintage bag at all. This was not made by LV. You can tell by the leather logo on the front (never made like that) and the 'lack of lustre sheen' on the canvas that it is not a genuine bag. I can almost guarantee that it has a pale colored brushed cotton lining rather than the dark cinnamon color cotton. The French company made LVs under the instruction of Louis Vuitton and put their large French Company label inside.
