Ahead of 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™, Louis Vuitton unvealed a specially handmade travel case to hold football’s greatest prize, the FIFA World Cup trophy.
The meticulous designed travel case which measures 36 cm in height, weights 6.175 kg and made of solid 18-carat gold with a base of semi-precious malachite is specially commissioned by FIFA. The travel case is also fitted with Louis Vuitton’s signature brass lock and corners, and has a dark brown lining which brings out the rich gold of the FIFA World Cup trophy.
The LV trophy case is handmade by a single master craftsman in Louis Vuitton’s historic Asnières workshop near Paris, which opened in 1859.
The FIFA World Cup trophy, and it specially handmade LV case will be watched by many millions of people across the globe when it’s being presented at the final on 11th July in Johannesburg.
I especially love how the trophy case opens at the front and at the top to allow the Trophy to be removed easily.
This is one LV case you wanna own!
