Authentic vintage Louis Vuitton Saumur 30 messenger bag / purse. It was authenticated by authenticatefirst and comes with a COA.
This bag was made by Louis Vuitton for many years. It was designed in the style of a horse's saddle bags. It was retired several years ago and the only way to acquire one for your collection is to buy vintage.
This one was made in May of 1992 in the U.S.A.
It has two large storage areas that are back-to-back. They are buckled together on the side. One side has a divider to organize your things and the other side has a large open area. Lined in the Louis Vuitton cocoa brown cotton canvas. Has buckle closure.
I carried this for a while and at first I was frustrated because I could not remember what side I had placed certain things and how to tell the sides apart. It was when I realized that the top flap is one piece of monogram fabric is right-side-up on one side and up-side-down on the other side. Problem solved!
Measures 11" wide by 8 1/2" tall. Strap is 48" long right now, but will adjust up or down.
Very clean inside. No odors. Non-smoking home. Vachetta leather has turned a dark honey color with time. Some areas of the strap has cracking, but it is not all the way through. I did condition all of the leather. Some the the edging leather has gouges missing. Look very closely at the photos. Brass hardware has not been polished but would shine up if you like it to not have patina.
Leather date code inside. Heat stamp on rectangular tag and on the shoulder pad, under the strap.
Great collectible bag that will hold a lot and sty comfortable on your shoulder
