Louis Vuitton 1980s Traveling Bar


From BoingBoing



This stately and elegant Whiskey Case was made to order by Louis Vuitton in the 1980s.

There is one available [pictured above open and closed] at posh 20th century design shop Pullman Gallery.

The Pullman Gallery's description:

An extremely rare special-order travelling bar by Louis Vuitton, circa 1980s.

In effectively unused condition, the square case with top carrying-handle is in gold Epi leather, with gold-plated studs, latches and lock, and original key.

The drop-front exposes the interior, lined in deep green alcantara and grained leather and fitted with compartments containing all a whiskey connoisseur would require — a single heavy glass silver-mounted whiskey carafe, four whiskey beakers, a Thermos-lined ice bucket, and a nut or olive dish, all in sterling silver and marked Christofle for Louis Vuitton.

A stamped pair of silver tongs and a corkscrew with cover completes the set.

The lock bears number 1079296; the inner label is stamped Louis Vuitton, Made in Paris, 976517.

Height: 15 inches (37 cm).

Price on request.


LV's recent updated model of the Whiskey Case (below)


is approximately $35,000.

Wait a sec — what's that music I'm hearing?
