Vintage Horsebit spoon set, 1970s

Originally released in the late 1970s, this set of six metal spoons have a Horsebit detail at the end. 'Gucci Italy' is engraved into each spoon. This set of spoons was selected by the Creative Director and Vault archivists for its particularity, character and exceptional vintage condition, and it was reconditioned by the in-house atelier. It has been given the number 76 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.

The Story

Part of Gucci’s genetic code, the Horsebit has been established as one of the most distinctive elements among the House symbols borrowed from the equestrian world. Here, the original shape is transformed as one end of the Horsebit becomes the round end of a spoon, adding a whimsical touch to a serviceable design.

The intricate design speaks to the craftsmanship that encompasses every Gucci product—transcending the original purpose to a true piece of art.

As soon as you hold a piece of the Vault, you begin to write a new chapter of its story—instituting a relationship, rather than an ownership, that will forever connect one owner to the next. As the years accumulate, every mark or crease is collected onto the surface, continuously altering the item’s appearance and making it completely unique. Imperfections should be expected and treasured as the journey continues for this piece.
