The condition of this purse is good, it's not perfect in anyway. Circa 1930s-early 1940s , this was before he use cane bamboo for his purse handles. It comes before the Kelly Bag and Jackie Bag, these came after mine. It's truly an old Gucci. purse. The inside is traditional Gucci red, and there's a metal zipper not a nylon one that is on the Kelly Bag. The handbag needs to be professional polished by a leather expert or cobbler that deals with leather purses. It was stored away for a long time, it needs some work. The inside has some flaws, only from age not from use. It has normal crackling from age, not bad. There are no tears on the inside, but a few scuff marks on the outside that needs some buffing out with good professional polish. The metal zipper is old, but works fine.. The compartments of the purse needs to be dusted out, not bad. The metal turn latch is discolored from possibly the elements. The bottom of the purse has some wear , normal use. It was well loved , and has held up for its age. It was used. this is in no way mint condition, but very good condition for its age. Not quite an antique, but soon will be. A great heirloom piece to pass on to generations to come if handled and cared for correctly.
I hope to list it on Etsy as well next to all the hundreds of Gucci handbags, mine is a classic. I do accept reasonable offers, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
