  • Italian Mid Century Poker Set Bottle, 1960's
    By Gucci
    Located in Albano Laziale, Rome/Lazio
    This rare item is designed as a bottle and hides a poker set inside and is a real collectors item. All chips and markers are in place as well as well as the original dice. The bottle is made in wood and decorated with cow hide. We had an exact bottle like this previously produced in 1962, albeit with a little bit different design on the bottle that was stamped Gucci as seen in the pictures. This one does not have a mark that says Gucci but is similar inside on all parts. If you want to see more pictures of that piece let us know. The three last pictures are of the Gucci poker...
