Very rare set of five suitcases in black... - Lot 7 - Osenat
Very rare set of five suitcases in black skai or croute de cuir for CITROEN SM : This is a demonstration set that was supplied to CITROEN dealers to demonstrate that the car's trunk could hold numerous suitcases despite the presence of the spare wheel. The manufacturer is unknown and there is no documentation. It comes in 2 colors to match the SM's leather: black or fawn. It consists of 5 "gigognes" suitcases (there was also a vanity missing, which completed the set). There are a few rare photos, notably from a salon of the period, showing this set in action. It was never "mass-produced" and is rarely supplied in this way. They are in used condition, but do not appear to have been used. The interiors are in yellow fabric with some wear and tear. There are a few keys and identification tags. Every SM owner should own such a set, which is much rarer than the "resin wheels" of the period. The total number of sets produced is estimated at less than 20.
