Thanks guys! Now that Vuitton is somewhat "Titanic related", I really want to buy some lol! Thanks very much!
Does anyone else know or remember which jewelry item it was?
14k yellow gold, glass; L 1 15/16" X W 3/16"; Custom wax and cast. This tiny detailed fox scarf pin or stick pin has two small, round, cabochom eyes--each of which measures approximately 1 millimeter in diameter.
The scarab pin can be seen on page 16 of the newer reprint of the book "Titanic The Artifact Exhibition" put out and sold by RMSTI.
I have one very like that.When i was at the Louis Vuitton Store in Manchester buying bags, They had on display a 1909 Special Edition Louis Vuitton Trunk there were only 100 made in France at a retail price of 405 francs, three of these trunks boarded the Titanic in France and sadly went down with the Ship, the Trunks were the classic pattern Monogram. The trunks were stored as not wanted, so they were stored below deep in the ship, finding them would be impossible as the trunks would of decayed away, the only remains of them would be the brass plated corner edges and the brass plated bottom stamped with Louis Vuitton. View attachment 18552 this is what they looked like
Hello Yuriko. The answer to your first question is, yes but they may not have loaded the luggage until sailing day and kept it in a warehouse.Hi all, quick question! Would it be possible for a passenger to send their 'not wanted' luggage to the ship a day or two before sailing day, arriving with only their cabin luggage? or would they have to lug around half a dozen trunks with them onto Titanic?
Also, what was the difference between 'baggage room' items and 'hold' items? What sort of items might a passenger put in the baggage room as opposed to the hold?
