Gucci Vintage Information Thread

  1. That is the only photo I have. The bag was my Mothers and is currently at my cousins house. I did find one bag online that is the same style, different leather here, and has the same marking inside. This bag also has that marking, with a better closeup to see it. This tells me 1960's and I am guessing an upper end for value. The designation 'Boutique' makes me think it is either a product line or an identifier of where it was made, or both. I am sure my mother owned this bag for at least 30-40 years. She left about 40 bags with brands like Tod's, Sabina, Lisette, Fugatti, Furla, Magid, Koret, Hanae Mori, Frenchy, Ande.. all seem to be vintage. So I am learning about handbags and it is difficult to match these {older} bags to find info about them.
     
  2. Does anyone know what time period this clutch is from? Thank you!

  4. Hello all! First post here. I recently purchased a vintage Gucci tote in a print I've been obsessed with but have never been able to find any information about and I'd love it if any of you could help me out. As far as I can tell this print is very rare, at least I've hardly ever seen it compared with Flora or the GG diamond. I've seen it in a few different styles on various vintage selling sites -- a men's button down, a beach towel, and handbags (my tote, a similar tote with a single strap, a clutch or wallet, and a bucket bag). I've only ever seen this blue colorway. I think it's from the 80's, give or take a few years (I found an ad featuring a beach towel from '94). I'm a textile designer myself and really interested in fashion history and I'm in love with this print and would love to learn more about it. Thanks!!

    Description for anybody who might be searching like I was ;) -- checkerboard or patchwork or tile design featuring GUCCI in large black capital letters, plus illustrations of flowers, butterflies, loafers, teacups, boots, horse bit, peaches, oranges, fish, purses, and a sun motif. Ground colors are blue, dark blue and white/cream.

  5. I'd have to see the inside tag but as far as I know it was only the mid-90s
