1970's Bottega Veneta Large Envelope Leather Clutch Handbag


Bottega Veneta's slogan 'When your own initials are enough' is apropos as their handbags speak volumes about style and quality without the necessity of a logo ... and this handbag is no exception. The oversized cognac color leather clutch offers an envelope style silhouette with a unique Art Deco revival closure that turns akin to a dial for entry. The interior reveals a zippered side pocket which spans the full length of the handbag and a brown fabric lining. The original owner purchased the handbag while on holiday in Italy and the dust bag and original marketing card are included. The handbag shows signs of wear and storage though it is in very good condition and the leather has aged beautifully. There is a dark mark at the top left corner at the back of the handbag shown in photograph 8. There are also two small 'x' ink marks under the medallion on the interior as shown in photograph 11. This may denote a factory flaw and the handbag may have been sold as a 'second'. It measures 14.75" wide x 9" tall and is almost completely flat when empty.
