Singular handmade Bernardini Cigar Liqueurs Cabinet in a rare vintage Louis Vuitton Trunk
A rare and fine Monogram Vintage Louis Vuitton Trunk from the 1950’s. Customized, handmade by our artisans in Italy as a Cigar Liqueurs Cabinet.
For this project only the best quality materials have been used and most of its components have been especially handmade, making this a unique singular, collectable piece. There is only one.
An object that celebrates the long-standing marquetry techniques along with the elegance of the art deco styling.
The cabinet doors create a geometric art deco inspired pattern created by a meticulous handmade work of intricately laying solid mahogany wood panels. The cabinet doors and drawers’ edges have been cut at angles and then reassembled in a design that plays with volume, light and shadows to highlight the richness of the material. The rose gold plated diamond shaped handles were specially created to match the inclination of the mahogany panels grain. The diamond shape recurs on the art deco motif engraved on the mirrors.
The drawers are fully equipped, with top quality humidifier and hygrometer, to function as humidor cigars trays and can be extracted from the trunk to comfortably serve your guests.
Both sides of the Bar as well as the cabinets interior are equipped with a LED lighting system controlled by proximity sensor.
Among the crystal shelves, two extractable wooden framed with rose gold plated handles lend themselves as trays for an elegant serving.
All the main parts, including the cabinet’s inside, are made with a Grade #1 matured fine mahogany wood. The metal elements are all 16kt rose gold plated brass. Trunk’s internal walls are lined up with cowhide leather panels hand tanned in Italy to create their beautiful vintage patina and with an elegant and warm peach finish Alcantara® in tobacco shade. A set of high-quality crystal bottles and glasses is included.

Over the last 20 years, Bernardini has designed and handmade a large collection of customised and bespoke objects for our niche and select worldwide clientele.
Our customised objects made from beautiful vintage luggage pieces from the “Grand Maisons” like Goyard, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Chanel can be selected from our collection prototypes and photo catalogue.
The luggage pieces can be chosen from our collection of beautifully and expertly restored briefcases, suitcases, hatboxes and trunks or you can show us your own luggage pieces, so we can study whether it would be possible to customise it depending on its shape and condition. Alternatively, based on your wish, we can source the perfect vintage luggage piece for you.
After your model choice we generally have a production lead time of 2 to 3 weeks for the smaller items, when chosen as per prototype. For bigger bespoke objects the lead can run up to 4 to 5 months. In todays market unfortunately the sourcing of high quality materials may take several months.
