Vintage authentic Louis Vuitton monogram Speedy Nano bag with original shoulder strap. This bag came from an estate with this strap. I'm keeping them together.
The nano is a very small, miniature bag that measures 6" wide by 5" tall. This one was made in June of 1993 and has the date code TH0963. Made in France.
LV still makes these little bags as it is very vogue to carry a miniature crossbody right now. They cost $1100 new plus the shoulder strap which run about $300. They resell in the $500 range no matter how old they are.
This one is less because of condition. The leather is very dark and dry. The handles have cracks and I am sure that is why the owner started using a shoulder strap, to preserve the handles. The should strap has areas of the leather that is very poor condition. It is black and cracking. It has a break at one of the holes that was glued in place. Could be cut off and still used. The strap has Louis Vuitton heat stamp under the shoulder pad which has curled ends. This bag can be carried, just with care. It is more of a novelty for a collection and / or display because it has fragile areas. It is missing the leaf shaped zipper pull which one sees often with all sizes of Speedy bags.
Here is it pictured with a Speedy 30 that will be listed on Friday. See how tiny?
I brought this bag into my website because I received so many requests for the one that I have pictured on my home page with the turquoise. I wanted to find one that was affordable. So here it is!
