On the 19th of May, Christie’s, the world’s leader in auctioneering modern and contemporary art, will auction off an interesting selection of vintage Hermés, Louis Vuitton and Dunhill luggage. Held in Christie’s South Kensington branch in London, it is a tempting opportunity to build a collection with lasting value, as luxury items such as these are more in vogue than ever. Several of the items on sale include two cream coloured canvas and leather suitcases by Hermés dating back to the mid-20th century, estimated at about $2,200 – $3,000; two black cases by Dunhill and T. Anthony, the first of black leather in semi-circular form with one fitted tray and gunmetal hardware, the second of black fabric with leather strapping, lined in moiré with various pockets and gilt hardware, estimated at about $1,200 – $1,500; and a monogram hard-side case and cover by Louis Vuitton, estimated at about $900 – $1,200.
See the rest after the jump.
