RARE AND HISTORIC ANTIQUE LOUIS VUITTON TRUNK MADE FOR VICE PRESIDENT HANNIBAL HAMLIN.

Lot 3008A: RARE AND HISTORIC ANTIQUE LOUIS VUITTON TRUNK MADE FOR VICE PRESIDENT HANNIBAL HAMLIN.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Hannibal Hamlin was from Bangor, Maine and was the 15th Vice President of the United States serving under President Abraham Lincoln during his first term. When preparing to run for a second term, it was Lincoln's intent to ingratiate some portions of the South by selecting a Vice Presidential candidate from the South and Andrew Johnson of Tennessee was selected. Eventually Hamlin was appointed as the United States Ambassador to Spain in 1881. It is believed that this rare Louis Vuitton trunk may have been purchased at this time for their move to Spain or purchased at an earlier date. A label on the interior of the lid boasts two medals won by the Louis Vuitton Company, one in 1867 and the other 1868. So it is entirely possible that the trunk could have been owned by the HamlinÕs long before his eventual trip to Spain.The trunk is covered in what appears to be original black oilcloth type surface. On one end in red ink is clearly stenciled, "H. Hamlin", also, "W177". The end also retains remnants of a paper Liverpool Steamship label. The opposite end of the trunk is also stenciled, "H. Hamlin" and the lid of the slightly domed trunk retains a couple remnants of ancient paper shipping labels. The trunk is also fitted with iron carrying handles on either end. The interior top of the lid with a great old Louis Vuitton label, "1 Rue Scribe 1 Paris. Fabrique d' Articles DeVoyage SN 4931". The interior of the trunk is lined with a white paper having a delicate repeating black design and fitted with two removable trays, each having web bottoms. The lid and front are fitted with metal hinges (which have now become detached from the top lid). The trunk was acquired many years ago from descendents of the Hannibal Hamlin family at that time along with numerous other artifacts relating to Hamlin and the Hamlin family. This is the earliest Louis Vuitton trunk our firm has ever handled and we believe this to be not only a rare and valuable Louis Vuitton trunk but also one of historic import. SIZE: Approximately 43-1/2" long, 24" deep, 27" to the top of the dome. CONDITION: The trunk shows much use and wear with scattered losses of the outside surface material and similar losses to the interior. Lots of wear, chips and rubs to the ribs and to the surface. This was obviously an item well used by the Hamlin Family over the years. 9-90516
