For a sophisticated look, this is a stunning, ultra-rare Gucci Round Canteen Handbag in the iconic “Crossed G” Monogrammed Canvas and Camel Calfskin trim and Brown. It is a very rare vintage and authentic original. This Gucci features the rich, thick, Calfskin on the piping and all around the top and side leather trim. A Gucci that will leave no doubt of its heritage and authenticity, it is in excellent condition and from a private collection.
This Gucci is from the early 1980s which is signified by the genuine Gold-plated oval “Cross G” zipper pull. Inside, there is the Tan leather authenticity tag inside with the Gucci name stamped and, on the reverse, it has the series/model numbers. It has the "Crossed G's" on the strap stays as well.
A close look at the Gucci Lift Boy medallion is another indicator of this beautiful Gucci’s authenticity. Guccio Gucci, the founder of Gucci, was actually a lift boy and he operated elevators at the Savoy Motel in London at the beginning of the twentieth century.
Also, inside, the Saddle lining is clean and odor-free with only a couple of faint, insignificant marks inside. What is really nice is the lining has only the minimal and unnoticeable Gucci flaking as is usually typical with vintage Gucci's. This Gucci really looks and feels good. There is a single zippered security pocket. It is lined in Golden Signature Silk lining and it is pristine clean as well with no flaking at all.
On the outside, the canvas is spotlessly clean with no fading of the monogram, as it should be. The Calfskin is clean as well. The main zipper on the top works smoothly and the track is intact.
The long strap is supple and is attached by the aforementioned gleaming strap stays feeding into the looped ends. The strap is clean with no darkening and still has the clean Beige top-stitching from new. The canvas is clean with no fading or wear as you can see in the pictures. This is a Gucci that will make a statement whenever you carry it.
This is a Gucci that is a must-have for the Gucci collector. It is that nice.
The dimensions are: 8” in diameter x 3” W and the strap is a full 40” L or a 20” drop. Long enough to carry cross-body with ease.
