This Louis Vuitton briefcase, formerly the property of the late Christopher Skase, will be offered for public auction on November 28th 2015 in our South Yarra Auction Rooms.

As much a piece of social history as vintage luxury, Christopher Skase was renowned for his visionary, international standard Queensland resorts and for the part he played in putting the once sleepy town of Port Douglas on the international map with his Mirage resort.

DSC_2720The briefcase was gifted to the current owner in 1998 and carries an estimate of $2,000 – $4,000. It is styled in monogram canvas with tan leather trim and gold metal hardware, restored by Louis Vuitton, and sold with dust cover, box and bag, measuring 43.5 x 34 x 11cm.
