Beautiful authentic vintage Louis Vuitton Alma bag. It was authenticated by authenticatefirst and comes with a COA.
This bag was made in February of 1993. She is truly vintage. Her vachetta leather has turned a deep honey brown with time.
She is very clean inside. The lining was separated one one side and has been glued at some time. I did see one 1" area that is pulled away on one side, but I could not find it when I was shooting these photos. She has a single leather reinforced pocket that has her date code inside. No cellphone pocket because she was made before cellphones.
I cleaned the brass and the zipper moves beautifully. It is a bit wavy, but works great. The handles are in great condition without cracks. The leather at the bottom has scuffs and one of the corners had a split that was bout 1 1/2" long. I did glue it with a special leather glue and it worked great. One other corner has a thin spot, but nothing to worry about. Heat stamp on one end is deep and in great condition.
She measures 14" long by9 1/2" tall. Base is 6 1/4 wide.
I carry a vintage Alma. I love my bag. One of the fabulous things about this bag is the double zippers and that it unzips all the way to the leather opening up super wide so that you can find your stuff!
From a non-smoking home. No icky odors. She doesn't really even smell old and she's 26 years old. A great find!
