Gucci has made the Pouchette Top Zip in many variations but the Classic Cross “G” Monogrammed Convertible is the one that is really coveted. Adorned with the "Crossed G's" on canvas, this Pouchette is trimmed in the Brown Calfskin and is the very rare large version. A true early 1960s Gucci made in Italy by the Gucci family, it is pre-serial/model numbers and has the Gucci in script on the leather tab.
The canvas is clean with no cracks or stains. The leather trim on the zipper track and the zipper sides are worn from use and age. What is very good is the piping is intact, just needs to have a color conditioner. The wrist strap is also worn and needs repair and is stowed inside. You can carry this Gucci as a clutch with no problem.
The other great positive is this Gucci is lined in fabric and it is immaculate. No worries about the flaking canvas. This is an extremely rare, highly collectible Gucci that is priced accordingly and more than worth the repairs it needs to easily bring it to top quality.
Should you wish to do so, I will provide you, the new owner, the address of the well-renown shop that all of the major designers endorse and fine department stores send their handbags and shoes for repair. I have used them and they are very reasonable and am more than satisfied with the results and you will be, as well.
There is a single slip pocket on the front and it is clean inside. The top zipper works perfectly and the track is intact as well.
On the outside, the canvas color is rich and even. This Gucci is really beautiful and will bring many, many looks. When you carry this Gucci, even as it is currently, there will be no doubt that this is a genuine Gucci as the “crossed-G’s” are symmetrical which is a clear indicator of the authentication of Gucci. It is a model that is very hard to find today. You will not be disappointed with this Gucci.
It measures 10" L x 7" H x 2" D and the wristlet strap is 6 ½” long.
As always, this Gucci will come to you shipped with the utmost care via USPS Priority Mail or your choice of shippers indicated with insurance. Never a handling charge, just the exact shipping to your zip code. I ship all over the world and will gladly combine shipping on multiple purchases.
