It was 1854 when fashion designer Louis Vuitton opened his first luggage business in Paris at Rue Neuve-des-Capucines. When rail travel became a common part of life, Vuitton’s business began growing. Today, the company has extended its offering by including bags, clothing, shoes, accessories, and jewelry. A vintage Louis Vuitton suitcase is featured in the upcoming Eclectic Collection of Estates Worldwide auction, presented by Akiba Antiques. Its surface is patterned with the company’s logo and flowers. This particular design was created by Louis Vuitton’s son, Georges Vuitton, in 1896 in a branding effort. Over the years, it has become a recognizable design in the fashion world.
Collectors interested in figurative sculpture can consider a piece by American artist Roberto Santo. Carved in the 21st century, this bronze piece bears an abstract form surrounding a sphere. Santo is known for his figural motif sculptures. The sale’s featured lots also include a pair of Baccarat crystal candelabras that rest on sculpted dolphins.
