We had our first foray into vintage Gucci bags, especially the Gucci Accessory Collection in this post. Likewise, we also discussed how to determine authenticity in vintage Gucci bags through serial numbers. You have also seen Gucci knight crest zipper pulls in the Gucci zipper section.

Vintage Gucci bags are as ever as popular as the contemporary bags. Most people who begin with their Gucci journey inherit an item or two from yesteryears. These bags also are consistently listed on Ebay or other online selling platforms.

But a fair warning, some vintage bags are also fake Gucci vintage bags. It is important to study the hallmarks of an authentic vintage Gucci bag.

In this section, I will be posting a couple of vintage Gucci bags, some of which are from the vintage Gucci Accessory Collection. The Gucci Accessory Collection is an interesting piece of Gucci history that was made from 1979 until the late 1990s. It has been widely available in airports and department stores.

It will be interesting to look at the details on the hardware, leather and monogram print.

Using less hardware and leather out of pigskin, the usual combination are: 1) navy GG monogram print + navy leather trim + navy/red web stripe details, and 2) beige/ebony GG monogram print + brown leather trim + red/green web strip details.

The leather, being pigskin, has the distinct follicle marks; while fake Gucci Accessory Collection bag usually utilizes smoother cow skin leather and vinyl trims. A perfect example is the vintage fake clutch I have used back in 2007 (which is the starting point of my Gucci journey).

Aside from the Gucci leather tag and serial number, some vintage GAC bags also have a paper tag beneath. But through use and old age, it is not uncommon to see these tags get removed. Here is an example of an authentic paper tag.

Here are also a couple of hardware in a vintage Gucci Accessory Collection bag. These are usually engraved GG on a gold-tone hardware:

Some authentic vintage Gucci bags also had a “G.GUCCI” engraving on their hardware, probably from the 1980s.

As mentioned here, vintage Gucci linings tend to break down, so be attentive with the details of Gucci bags for sale on Ebay.

When buying vintage Gucci purses on Ebay, always ask for question on wear and tear. Gucci bags stand the test of time, but they are not infallible. It is particularly not desirable to have a flaking lining and ruin your stuff.




Next in the series, I will be discussing Gucci outlet bags.

  1. Hi there wondered if you could help? I’m watching a bag that is Vintage Gucci, it’s has a gold metal tag on the back which has the knight to the left with GUCCI and R circled above, then to the right it has Gucci written in italics (like the Gucci style) with MADE IN ITALY underneath

    Thanks

  2. Hi! I have a beautiful Gucci bag that fits all of these requirements, perfect patten on the outside, all of the hardware has the imprinted logo, the inside of the bag is slightly shedding its lining, and it has a serial number. The only thing that concerns me is that the paper tag on my vintage Gucci accessory collection bag. In your photo Gucci is on top and the crest is dead center. On mine, Gucci is dead center and the crest is on top. Otherwise everything else is the same. The back of the paper tag is authentic and the leather tag is beautiful. Does this small difference on the paper tag mean it is not authentic?

    • Hi! I have seen this type of Gucci tag that you described, but I can’t seem to find one from my own photo collection. If you could post a photo, this would be helpful but I see nothing to worry about. Cheers!

  3. Hi there,
    This is an excellent guide to identifying Vintage Gucci! I wondered if you knew anything about the label “Gucci Parfum” that appears in some vintage Gucci clutches from the 1980s. Do you know anything about this label? It confused me that some small Gucci Bags have this label. I have only seen this label on Gucci clutches. Any info you have would be greatly appreciated!

    • Hi! This is most likely given as free purses for Gucci perfumes. It also has the pigskin leather used on it. Kindly post a photo if you can. Cheers!

  4. I hope you are still keeping up with comments on here, because I really appreciate your tutorials and have an important question. Did Gucci ever made a blondie bag WITHOUT the big medallion on the front. I have on and everything looks so perfect except I couldn’t find single other one online that was the blondie style and did NOT have the medallion either attached or cut out on the top flap. Please help!

    • Hi! Sure, you can post a link to the photos of your Gucci bag in the comments. Happy New Year from our side in the Pacific!

      • I can send you the attachments but don’t have a website
        can i send you an email ? thanks

        • Hi! To educate more people, I suggest making photos publicly available. Try uploading on Tinypic, then paste the URL/link to the photo in the comment. Cheers!

  5. Greetings!

    Thanks so much for all your helpful tips for authenticating vintage Gucci bags. I’m new to the vintage bag scene but found what I believe to be a real vintage gucci bag from the 80’s for a steal of a deal. Would love your help in confirming if this bag is indeed authentic. I’ve included links to pics below. The serial number on the back of the tag is in a different format from the others that I’ve seen, but overall I believe the bag has many markings that confirm it’s authenticity.

  6. I recently received a Gucci accessory collection bag, it is in used condition, but I have no idea on the name of this bag, is it possible to send a picture to anywhere. For confirmation?

  7. Hi! I bought a vintage Gucci bag from an estate sale. Can you tell me is its authentic? I read all your articles….and I think its authentic,, however not totally sure. I was told that it was from the late 70s, possibly early 80s. It has the gold cursive logo. I haven’t seen that logo in your articles.

    • Hi! The Gucci cursive logo can be seen in one of the case studies (i.e. Gucci Abbey) I had posted. But yes, I have seen vintage bags with this logo font.

      If you can post a photo, I could help you out. Cheers!

    • Hi! Thank you for posting such detailed photos! It helps a lot in authenticating Gucci bags. Yes, this is an authentic vintage Gucci Accessory Collection bag. This still has the tyvek/paper material underneath. Congratulations!

    • Hi! This is an authentic vintage Gucci Accessory Collection bag. Cheers!

  8. I bought a Gucci bag and I’m having a hard time tracking down solid info on it. Can you tell me if you know anything about it? It’s gucci monogram with knights zipper full and gold g closure.

    • Hi! We need a photo of the bag to be sure. Several Gucci bags have the knight zipper pull in monogram. Cheers!

    • Hi! This looks like an authentic Gucci Accessory Collection bag to me. Cheers!

  9. I don’t want to post a link right away, but I see a vintage Gucci online… Everything seems to check out and even has this red drawstring pouch included… But the buckles lack GG symbol.

  10. HI I hope you can help I wanted to find out if this is a authentic bag ?

    You may have to zoom in on the zipper photo as it does say ykk on the zipper pull and the side of the zipper as well hopefully you still check this blog as your blogs have been very helpful

    • Hi! This is vintage Gucci bag with serial number 001.090.0487 is authentic, not to mention, very gorgeous! Congrats!

  18. Hi- really appreciate the detail you put into this post. I have a vintage Gucci bag I got from my mom and it seems some of the marks of authenticity are there and others not. Could you weigh in?

  19. hi, can you please help me authenticate vintage gucci bag. can i email you all detail picture of the bag? i dont know how to upload here. thanks

    • Hi Meyjune, please upload photos of your Gucci bag on Photobucket or Tinypic and paste the url/link here. Cheers!

  20. Can’t decide if this bag from the 80’s (from what I can find) is real or not, I’ve seen a couple like it, but most don’t show the inner plaque in pictures. Everything else looks legit on it compared to the others. Even has the same serial number as one other I found, but I don’t know. http://s1250.photobucket.com/user/Jenna_Boehme/library/?src=pb

    This is apparently an authentic one:

  21. Dear Bagaholic 101. I was told this bag was GUCCI but it misses out on lining, capitals, Registration mark and serial number. So I assume that it is fake?

  24. My wife bought a gucci vintage access collection crossbody, we have a suspicion it might not be authetnic. The buckle on the strap has mongram. The mongram at the front is slghtly tilted. & the zipper labels is dark organgy instead of gold compared to the the other metal. The metal on the 2 sides the bag that holds down the straps has no monogram on it either. May we send pics to you? Do you have a seperate email address for pictures? I’d like to act fast so that credic card doesn’t process the payment. Is there going to Gucci flagship in NY? Can they give an opinion?

    • Hi Sanoj! Please upload photos on Imgur or Tinypic and paste the links here for me to check. Cheers!

    • Hi Nydia! That’s such great news! I always love to hear readers score a bargain because of this real Gucci bag authentication guide!

  26. Thank you so much for your comments on my Gucci bag “001.090.0487”, I appreciate your help!
    (Sorry for the multiple uploading of photos, I thought they were not posted to you, so I kept on trying…)

    • You’re welcome! Yes, I’ve been receiving a lot of spam comments, thus the need for comment moderation! 😉

  27. Hello,
    I have a vintage crossbody Gucci bag without any serial numbers inside, probably from 1970. The new Ophidia bag resembles this style very much.
    It appears to be identical to the one you have featured in your page about Gucci authentication. Can you please help me confirm that this is 100% authentic. I uploaded the photos on Imgur.
    Thank you very much, Julie

  28. Hello,

    Not sure if I provided all the information you may need. Sorry, here it is one more time.
    I am looking for your help to authenticate the Vintage Gucci crossbody bag. I posted the photos on imgur, https://jtyles.imgur.com/all/. I have more photos if you need to see.
    It does not have a serial number, stitching is not perfect.
    Thank you very much,
    Julie

    • Hi Julie! Yes, this is similar to current Gucci Ophidia camera bags, and those from the vintage Gucci Accessory Collection also have this. Nevertheless, this is an authentic vintage Gucci bag, likely from the 1970s.

  29. Hi there, just recently purchased this bag on Poshmark. Tried to search for this vintage piece, but unable to locate online. Can you take a look. I’m not seeing logos on the D-ring and zipper is not YKK and the logo is not exactly matching up with anything I’ve seen. But then again here’s been so many variations!
    Thanks for the assistance.
    Here’s the link and I can provide more photos if needed.
