The vellum is dry and peeling away from the wood frame. I have 3 or 4 vintage LV trunks as well, all from 1890-1920, and the Goyard ones really destroy them. Baller! From what I've seen...

I authorize Ataturk to cross post that pic on AAAC and query the great man himself about its flaws. Should be a great threak.
