Rare & Original 1970s Gucci Deep Chocolate Suede Bucket Bag w Lucite Handle & Stripes

On Hold

This bucket bag by Gucci is fantastic and is a rare find. It is one of two that I have in the shop today and both were sourced from the original owner. This one has been made out of deep chocolate suede. The bag has a flat base so that it sits when you set it down. It curves up from there to the opening that is surrounded by gold toned metal loops. These are wrapped around an incredible deep brown lucite handle with a gold inset on either side of the handle. The handle is big enough that you can slip your arm through and wear it up on the shoulder. Running up the centre of the back of the bag is a wide band of dark brown leather that matches the piping around the base. This then extends out to create a strap and at the end of that is a huge double G logo in the same gold toned metal as the rings. The way the bag opens and closes is fantastic. To open it you flip the big double G logo back and over and the bag expands out and around the handle to create a wide opening at the top. To close it you flip the strap back over the top and the rings gather and close it tightly. It is genius. The bottom edge is finished with a wide band of their famous red and green stripes. This one came to me in an original Gucci shoe bag that will be sent with the bag. These bags are collectible in their own and well made. Excellent vintage condition with some natural patina

Inside is finished with a deep chocolate leather with a side pocket that has a snap to close. Minor patina and the gold hardware shows natural vintage patina here and there but no significant flaws that I can see. Everything is consistent with age and normal wear. Appropriate Gucci logo stamp on the underside of the top flap. Its original paper tag was in the pocket. Slight storage smell inside. The leather parts have been conditioned when they arrived here. The dress form it is photoed on is life size so gives you an excellent idea of size and how it sits on an actual person. 

11" W x 10.5" H x 6" D - the handle adds 8.5" to the height
