1970s Iconic Bamboo Clasp Brown Patent Leather Shoulder Bag
This authentic 1970s Gucci purse is made from genuine brown patent leather and features the iconic bamboo turn-lock closure. Inside, it has two large pouches, plus one zipper pouch with the knight shield crest pull attached. “Made in Italy by Gucci” is stamped in gold on the inside flap, as well as the numbering “72”. The gold hardware is all signed “GUCCI”.
The purse measures 10.5” x 7” x 3”, and the leather strap can be adjustable to measure between 29.5” - 34”. The body of the purse is in good condition, with just some minimal scratches on the bottom and back. The inside of the purse is clean and in excellent condition; the only flaw is a slight tearing of the leather on the inside of the flap. The strap is in poor condition: there was a piece of non-patent leather added to the inside to strengthen it and prevent a small tear from worsening. In addition to some small marks, the strap is cracking and will likely need to be replaced at some point. Please zoom in carefully on all of the photos to get a good understanding of the flaws; we have priced the purse accordingly. Despite its imperfections, it remains a rare and collectible piece of fashion history!
