The handles have a very dark patina and there are also spots on the side of the handles. The key is missing for the lock as well. DESCRIPTION: Now in its third century, Louis Vuitton remains one of the world's most coveted symbols of status and sophistication. The Damier pattern was designed in 1888 and the Monogram, in 1896. Over a hundred years later, these remain two of the most recognizable prints in the world. PLEASE NOTE: In return for a little wear and tear and small blemishes, you'll enjoy big savings on this authentic, well-loved style that still offers plenty of pizazz. Be sure to read the item's condition description carefully, as all sales are final and there can be no returns or exchanges.
