SOLD Vintage 60s navy blue leather classic handbag by Gucci made in Italy
This is a very elegant handbag, of iconic 60s design, made for sought after brand Gucci in Italy. It is in excellent overall but not pristine condition. The leather is a fine calf leather which is in excellent condition to the front base and sides with just the odd mark or scuff to the leather. The handles are uncreased and look unused. The back of the handbag does have a small area where the leather has darkened with a few small bumps. It almost looks as though someone has taken a felt pen to it but because the rest of the handbag is in such good condition we think it unlikely. The dark patch is not immediately obvious in use as it is next to the body and we have taken photos of this area, pictured below. We have tried to photograph the darkened area at it's most noticeable. The gilt hardware to the front is in excellent condition, no scratches, just a diminution of gilt to the motif over the clasp. The handbag closes with a popper, fully working and secure with just a few scratches to the gilt as seen in the penultimate photo. The inside of the handbag is where the quality really shows. The handbag is lined in a buttersoft leather in a deep rust, edged in navy leather. There is a wallet pocket secured with a popper, a slim slip pocket and a zipped pocket. The inside has just one small mark, visible in the photos but no stains and looks unused. The name Gucci and made in Italy is embossed in gilt on the lining.
This is an elegant and iconic 60s handbag, a style worn by the late Jackie Kennedy whose preferred handbag brand was Gucci, she had numerous different styles of Gucci handbags in her wardrobe. It looks classic and elegant and would be perfect for smart or formal occasions notwithstanding the flaw to the back of the handbag as it is a genuine vintage handbag of superior quality and brand. It could be worn for smart or formal occasions and is in a very versatile colour for most coloured outfits. It is priced to reflect the fact that it does have the damage to the back because it is a very rare handbag and without the darkened patch would cost considerably more.
It is 11" x 7" x 3"
Sorry this is now sold
