Measurements: 10” at the widest part x 8” tall and 2” wide.
Shoulder strap drop: 12” and the strap width is 1” wide.
Stamped in gold “Made in Italy by Gucci.” Comes with the Gucci dust cover. FREE SHIPPING!
Condition: There are a couple of faint scratches on the leather inside and out, probably due to handling but considering the age of this bag it is not unusual and in no way detracts from its beauty. It is clean and odor free and shows no sign of real wear. There is one thing to report: on the underside of the flap there is a gold metal rivet missing, it does not hinder the clasp in any way. Overall this bag is in excellent vintage condition.
HISTORY OF THE GUCCI HOUSE
Like many other high-fashion companies, Gucci began as a small, family-owned saddlery and leather goods store. Guccio Gucci was the son of an Italian merchant from the country’s northern manufacturing region. As a young man, he travelled to Paris and London, where he gained an appreciation of cosmopolitan culture, sophistication, and aesthetics.
Gucci opened his first boutique in the family’s native Florence in 1921 and quickly built a reputation for quality, hiring the best craftsmen he could find to work in his atelier. In 1938, Gucci expanded and a boutique was opened in Rome. Guccio was responsible for designing many of the company's most notable products. In 1947, Gucci introduced the bamboo handle handbag, which is still a company mainstay. During the 1950s, Gucci also developed the trademark striped webbing, which was derived from the saddle girth, and the suede moccasin with a metal bit.
