This travel chest or trunk was manufactured by Moynat between 1920 and 1940. It is made from wood and fabric.
Moynat is the oldest trunk company in France. The first atelier was opened in Paris in 1849 by trunk-makers Octavie and François Coulembier, five years before Louis Vuitton, which was founded in 1854. In 2010 LVMH (Louis Vuitton) bought Moynat. In December 2011 a Moynat boutique was opened at 348 rue Saint-Honoré, not far from the famous Hermès boutique at 24, rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
