Gucci Shoulder Bag Medium Size Navy Leather And 'g' Coated Canvas:
GUCCI VINTAGE SHOULDER BAG LT GRAY COATED CANVAS/ NAVY LEATHER TRIM'ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION'
I do not knowwhen the bag was constructed, but perhaps the mid to late 80's. It is a medium size - 10" x 7 1/2" x 3". The base measures 3" x 9 3/4". The strap measures 5/8" wide by a total of 44" with buckle at the shortest hole. An interior leather label reads: GUCCI ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION MADE IN ITALY. Above these words is a Gucci triangle shape logo. All are stamped on the surface in gold. The lining is a tan material, seems man-made, but intended to look like leather (pigskin). The lining is in fine condition.Hardware retains its shiny brass-tone finish.
The bag is a combination of coated canvasand leather. The canvas is a light gray with navy 'G's. The trim is navy leather in what appears to be pig skin - the leather has a bit of texture caused by thetiny indentations in the surface. The leather is substantial.The bag has a 1 1/8" widesturdywoven cotton tape in navy and red, beginning under the frontside pocket and extending under the bottom and around to the top of the back side where it meets the leather top trim.This woven tape brightens the appearance of an otherwise subdued color scheme - a very nice bright, GUCCI detail.
There are several very small places where the leather's surface is disturbed. On the back side, lower left corner of the leathercovered cord pipingis a 1/2" area of surface wear. (photo #9") This is the largest andmost noticeable of anywear- the others are very very small surface disturbances.I believe that all areas could be restored with a coat of wax polish which would benefit the leather in any case.
The bag has an 8 1/4" zippered pocket on the front side. It is lined in the tan material, it is 5" deep. There is a navy metal pull tab as well as a 5/8"GG gold tone disc. The bag opens at the center top, the zipper curves around the top edges - 14" in length. The metal pull tab of this zipper has lost most of itsnavy coating.Both matching navy, Nylonzippers are between pieces of the navy trim. 1 5/8" wide on front zipper, 2 1/2" wide on top pieces. All stitching is in a matching navy thread. The 7",interior zippered pocketis 4 1/2" deep. There are no other compartments in the interior. It has considerablespace. The leather label is attached to the front side of this pocket.The bag does not have a 'structured' bottom.
The bag is constructed in the traditional Gucci method at the time. Considering its age,the bagis in good, used condition. Original stitching is intact, very minimal loss of surface color. Strap holes and hardware are in very good condition. The bag has been used, but not in a hard way.The interior is clean and in fine condition. The bag is clean and odor free. Please feel free to ask me any questions.
NOTE: I could ship the bag in a lightweight box or amedium/large sizepadded, plastic mailer with extra protection. The weightusing the mailer is just over 1 lb, so we are in the 1-2 lbrange. There is usually a USPS PM rate available, 2/3 day delivery, that comparew with and is often better than the new USPS PS service. I will check on this for you at Invoice time.
