Amongst all the wondrous characteristics of the Parisian leather goods House founded in Paris in 1849 lies this one extraordinary fact: its name belongs to Pauline Moynat, the first and only woman to bring feminine flair to the male-dominated metier of luxury trunk-making at the height of the Belle Epoque. Its Paulines touch her insights into her customers lifestyles, the innovation with which she met the arrival of the motor car, her delight in having her artisans craft sensuous materials and details into every shape, surface and lock that embodies the feminine know-how of the House.
This piece of French luggage history is in beautiful condition and would make a lovely display piece.
