Restoration of a Louis Vuitton mail trunk , in leather and brass.
This 1906 collector's trunk , whose beech wood slats have been completely eaten by pests.
The damaged wooden slats were replaced by beech wood of the same type and of the same quality, the wood was aged to be in harmony and not to denote the age of our Louis Vuitton trunk. This is the job of the restorer.
