I believed everyone knows Louis Vuitton or shortened to LV. The label’s LV monogram appears on most of its products, ranging from luxury trunks and leather goods to ready-to-wear, shoes, bags, sunglasses and so on.
A elderly couple that stay in a small village in eastern Ukraine used a trunk, which was branded with the letters “LV” on its sides to store corn for their chickens. Lucky you , chickens!! i don’t even owned a LV keychain.
It went on like this for decades, until one of their relatives, who knew a thing or two about this luxury brand, enlightened the couple. To their credit, the elderly couple didn’t even try to sell the trunk, but passed it to a museum for safekeeping. They considering that it may have a pretty exciting history behind it.
Museum Director, Bulakh had checked the trunk’s authenticity and learned that it was likely produced in early 1880s and cost at least EUR11,000 ( RM 50k). Some Louis Vuitton trunks have previously been sold by auctioneers for more than EUR 100,000 ( RM 500k ).
Bulakh believes that the item may have on board in a Russian imperial train, which derailed in 1888. 30 people were killed in the crash. The ancestors of the elderly couple might have helped with the rescue work and were gifted the passengers’ belongings as a token of gratitude.
However, this is just one possible scenarios. The trunk could also have been brought home as a trophy by a Soviet Army soldier, who liberated Europe from the Nazis during the World War II.
Whatever it is, The elderly couple have replaced the Louis Vuitton trunk with a large stainless steel pot, which also does the job, so their chickens have nothing to worry about!!
