Bottega Veneta Butterfly Fabric & Red Leather Handbag, 1970's



This vintage Bottega Veneta handbag is a beautiful mix of a polished canvas fabric with a tropical butterfly motif in shades of green, deep blue, grayish blue, golden yellow, red and aqua with a cherry red leather trim. 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 modified bucket style silhouette sports an outer pocket and a roomy interior both with snap closures. The main interior compartment has a zippered pocket for added security and the generous double shoulder strap offers easy wear. Dust bag is included. CONDITION The handbag is in good vintage condition. The shoulder strap is knotted at the end and not actually stitched which appears to be by design. The original owner added a knot and though it could be untied it might leave marks on the leather, please see photograph 11. MEASUREMENTS The body of the handbag measures 9.5" wide x 10.5" tall x 5.5" deep. The shoulder strap measures 60" from end to end providing a 15" drop when doubled as shown on the mannequin in photograph 2.
