The Story

A small handbag crafted in blue leather, was first produced in the 1970s. The front is detailed with the GG in gold-toned metal. This model appears in the artisans' notebook dated 1969-1973. Inside there is 'Made in Italy by Gucci' embossed in gold and the number '10', the identification number of the artisan. Stripes in green and lilac are hand-painted onto the original design, reviving it into a one-of-a-kind item

In 1971, the request was made to the Ministry of Industry and Commerce to obtain the patent for the design "GG golden metal decorative accessory," and the patent was granted in 1972.

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 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.
