“The Louis Vuitton suitcase has gotten a lot of attention and the real photo postcards are of great interest to many collectors,” said Jeffrey Evans.

The body is colorless, textured with veining and open bubbles, and has emerald green applied rim, handles and foot. Faint cracks are noted where one handle has been applied. It carries an $800-$1,200 estimate.
