Antique Louis Vuitton Haberdashery Drawers (hw1285)

A rare and beautiful antique haberdashery or 'mercerie' item. This beautiful set of sewing thread drawers dates from 1900 to 1920 and was made by Louis Vuitton, the prestigious maker of travel cases, trunks and boxes. This is a six drawer box designed to hold fusettes, the small tubes of cotton thread. The box has a wooden body with board drawers and is covered with a textured/embossed woven paper/textile mix which resembles leather. It is decorated with various texts and logos including the LV for Louis Vuitton, CB for Cartier Bresson (a textile manufacturer of the era) and the horse head logo, all printed in soft gold with the detail appearing on the top and back of the box and all six drawers. Each drawer has a tiny, bakelite-type knob and metal label holder.

A rare and fine collector's piece for both Louis Vuitton enthusiasts and those with a passion for antique haberdashery. The drawers are approximately 24.5cm high, 25cm deep and 28.5cm wide. They are in very good condition for their age with age-related wear mainly to edges as seen. Some age-spotting to drawer interiors. The bottom drawer is missing its cardboard separators and has had a repair at the front sides in the past, to strengthen it. The underside of the box has a blue coloured paper covering which shows scuffing and wear.
