LONDON.- Chiswick Auctions
is to offer a sale of designer luggage from the private collection of the late Sir David Tang and his wife Lady Tang in its upcoming Designer Handbags & Fashion sale on 13th February, 2019.
Sir David Tang, the former entrepreneur, socialite, private collector and fashion tycoon, best known for setting up the fashion empire Shanghai Tang was admired for his impeccable taste and an appreciation of high quality. The items being offered for sale are therefore all by well-known designers and are in excellent condition.
Meg Randell, Head of Fashion at Chiswick Auctions, said: Sir David Tang was well known for his eclectic, exuberant style. Splitting his life between Hong Kong and London he was often travelling, so it makes sense that his personal luggage would be as stylish as he was. The Tangs had a large collection of beautifully-crafted Louis Vuitton and Goyard hard-sided trunks, several of which are included in the auction.
Amongst them is a Louis Vuitton Monogram Alzer Trunk, in monogrammed canvas with leather trim and gold tone hardware. It includes a leather luggage tag and key and is in superb condition. It is estimated to fetch £1,500-£2,000.
A Louis Vuitton Monogram Alzer Trunk from the first half 20th century in monogrammed canvas also has leather trim and gold tone hardware and is estimated at £800-£1,200.
Last but not least is a Louis Vuitton Monogram Cotteville 40 Trunk in monogrammed canvas with leather trim and gold tone hardware. It includes a leather luggage tag and is estimated to fetch £400-£600.
