Antique Louis Vuitton Bench for Sale
An antique bench upholstered in Louis Vuitton's signature monogram canvas is being offered for sale by Southall Antiques in San Francisco. Priced at $6,400 and probably not a Vuitton original, the unique, eye-catching object is a 20th century Louis XV style parcel gilt and acanthus carved piece raised on cabriole legs that was apparently re-covered at some point in the famed fabric. Given that Vuitton is very careful with its canvas due to the pervasiveness of counterfeiters, we are inclined to wonder whether the fabric itself is authentic. It is nonetheless an attractive and attention-getting design accent for the right decorating scheme as well as an attractive item for vintage Vuitton collectors.
