Si Gaston s'en remettra, Renée aura beaucoup plus de difficulté.

Wooden games designed and created exclusively by Gaston Louis Vuitton.

Gaston decided in September 1935 to open a "Toys" department on the mezzanine of the Champs Elysée store and to entrust it to his wife, to give happiness to the children. It is also a way of diversifying its activity which faced the crisis of the 1930s.

 

In the shop, we will find:

 

Wooden toys (rocking game, Animals to drag or to push, figurine), soft toys, puppet, dolls, toy soldiers, jigsaw puzzle and puzzles, music box, and doll trunks, Dollhouse, card games ...

Louis Vuitton's toy department very quickly competed with the toy leader in France, the Blue Dwarf and the Yellow Hand.

 

 

In this store, there are 2 very distinct types of items:

  • Toys designed by Louis Vuitton

The toys will be designed and deposited by Gaston Louis Vuitton.

Extract from 1932:  "Its appearance, essentially geometric, rectilinear and simple, does not arouse any concern in those who are invited to operate the disassembly. But the 6 parts composing the Pateki having been dismantled and stirred, it is then that the reassembly difficulty appears. " ... "Board games awakening intelligence and the development of the spirit of research"

The last element is engraved Louis Vuitton.

It is one of the most sought after games by collectors.

Mounted dimension: 30 mm x 30 mm x 30 mm


jeu de société pateki 2006 réédition Louis Vuitton jeu bois

 

The Pateki - board game

This 2006 Reissue is 2.3 times larger than the 1932 version at the time of Gaston Vuitton. And this is no coincidence, it allows a better grip, but also to be made of wood and the number 69 is reminiscent of the interlocking of the elements with each other, very meaningful for this rebirth in sycamore maple, a wood traditionally used by craftsmen for the manufacture of musical instruments.

patéki patéko louis vuitton rare collection

An evolution has been made on this reissue, a magnet embedded in the wood, allows to maintain the last piece which tends to escape on the original version. Attention to detail to make this object even more playful, almost magical.

The Monogram motifs have been engraved on six sides of the cube to facilitate the game, using a technique akin to pyrography, an ancestral tradition of marking the wooden game. 

Over time, the color of the wood takes on a very slight patina, which is reminiscent of the patina of natural cowhide leather.

Assembled dimensions: 69 mm x 69 mm x 69 mm

 

Notice 2006: rules of the game 

 

If you are playing alone: 

 

The object of the game is to bone the Patéki, to mix the pieces and then to cleverly assemble the 6 pieces around a centerpiece that holds everything together. The centerpiece is the last! very assembled part.

If you are playing with friends: 

Between friends, the game can become a competition in which the winner will be the one who climbs the Patéki as quickly as possible. For the more experienced, we can also go up the Patéki blindfold!

 

If one of your friends has another Patéki, have fun introducing one or more pieces of his Patéki (the Patéko) and it will complicate your task.

Louis Vuitton bridge card games

Year: 1970 

Model: bridge games

Manufacturer: BP Grimaud 

 

Bridge games: two decks (one red and one yellow) of 52 cards + 3 jokers + 2 game instructions

 

Baptiste Paul Grimaud created his manufacturing workshop in Paris in 1848, he developed the manufacturing of playing cards and built a large-scale business. Innovations at the service of the playing card. Thanks to multiple alliances, patents and buyouts, Grimaud quickly developed a great deal of know-how, at the forefront of the card industry.

bridge grimaud Louis Vuitton carte a jouet 1970

These innovations are mainly aimed at improving the quality of the cards and preventing cheaters from operating! The cards are opaque, the corners are rounded and small indexes are placed in the corners to prevent players from identifying them without opening their deck too wide.

The quality of the raw materials and the care taken in manufacturing as well as the quality of the prints and illustrations of the games are the basis of the House's reputation. Grimaud develops many games with inverted portraits (head to tail) where the figures are found in both directions. While today, we find that normal, initially the cards were readable only in one direction. It becomes Official Supplier of the largest gaming circles and casinos.

bridge grimaud Louis Vuitton carte a jouet 1970

The manufacture still today is carried out in France according to the traditional know-how of Master Cartier. It is therefore no coincidence that Louis Vuitton asked BP Grimaud to give him his cards. The collaboration of two Parisian companies at the forefront of their arts for 170 years. 

 

Anecdote  : to our knowledge, this is the only case where the Louis Vuitton motif is turned over so that the card is perfectly symmetrical, a nice nod to the history of Grimaud. Touching the historic monogram is not the habit of the luxury house Louis Vuitton.
