This is a Super Special Vintage Louis Vuitton Bag…
Okay – I admit it – I have way too many handbags. And I always want to keep the super cool vintage ones that I run into!
This LV St. Cloud from the late 60s – early 70s is a great example of a bag I do not want to let go of!
It is not only in very nice shape for an LV bag of its age, it is a vintage Louis Vuitton that is very hard to find.
Most of the vintage Louis Vuitton bags that we run into were made in America. They are super nice – but this one is nicer – and much rarer.. the inside leather, like most vintage French made LV bags, is in great shape – without the weird peeling and stickiness that we run into with the vintage American Made LV bags. There is patina – and some typical light scuffing – but functionally the leather & the bag are sound! The few minor cosmetic issues could be left as-is – or the bag could be taken to an authorized LV repair genius like Cesar’s in New York City.. with a few tweaks, leather conditioning, scuffs filled in, edge coating refreshed here and there – and the strap replaced with a new one from Louis Vuitton – this would easily be a $2000 handbag, and its value would only continue to increase as it got older!
This bag was a one owner bag, so was well cared for – the strap is original, and shows typical wear and some cracking for an LV strap of that age that was used regularly. It still is usable – but with just a simple strap replacement and nothing else – the bag will look even more amazing.
We love the original owner’s monogram, this was done in Paris at Louis Vuitton – the little extra edge of LV snootiness that just takes it into the realm of sublime in a vintage handbag!
Another rarity is the nickel hardware – not often seen on vintage LV bags – but popular because one wants to be able to match their platinum jewelry, dontcha know
