Truly vintage and authentic Louis Vuitton Noe Monogram Bucket Bag. This bag was made in November of 1989 in France. It has date code AR8911. Heat stamp on the lower outer plaque.
It was authenticated by authenticate first and will come with a COA.
The base measures 10 1/2" by 7 3/4". It is 13 1/2" tall. The shoulder strap is 25" long right now, but it has two buckles and will adjust up to 7" longer.
It has been lightly cleaned and the vachetta has been conditioned. It has some damage and thin areas along the rim with a few small holes. The vachetta has a warm patina and has turned a beautiful honey color. It is in very good condition. The brass hardware has a nice patina. I did clean some of the tarnish away. Leather drawstring is thick and in great vintage condition. Sometimes these break when they are vintage, but this one feels strong.
Interior is quite clean. Brown canvas. Has one spot. No pockets and does not have a ring for a pochette. This was made before they started adding one. I have a Noe of this vintage and I hook my pochette to the strap ring and it works just fine. From a non-smoking home.
These bucket bags hold SO MUCH! I have taken mine to the grocery store where I forgot to bring my shopping bags (In California-annoying bag law) and I put all of my groceries into my Noe and she carried all of it!
