BOTTEGA VENETA Black Leather Intrecciato Messenger Bag

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Bottega Veneta Messenger Bag This black leather bag can be worn cross-body style or on your shoulder. The strap connects to the body of the bag with gold tone buckles. It's divided into sections which really help in organizing your essentials. One section has a magnetic snap closure. Inside this section is a zippered pocket and the metal logo plate. The other section is the same size but is more of a pouch pocket. Satin lining. This has been used and is in good condition. The buttery soft leather has held up well and is great. The inside is also in good condition except the zipper pocket has come undone at the bottom along the seam (could easily be resewn). Comes with dustbag. Dimensions: 12'' x 10 x 3 Asking price: No longer for sale! I think I'll hang on to it now but keep an eye out on eBay too Also considering offers!!

Any age/provenance for the bag? Looks like older/vintage BV...

Honestly, I'm not sure. I bought it from the original owner who said they bought it from a BV store 'over a year ago'. I cannot, however, find this exact bag on the BV website so it does appear to be an older design. I could take additional pics if it would help identify an exact model (I'm not near a BV store unfortunately). 7/10 condition, functionality is there except for the small tear in the interior lining but there is wear along the seams

Edit* price drop as well

A pic of the inner metal BV label would help. Unfortunately, my opinion is that the original owner wasn't very clear with you... "over a year ago" probably means "over 20 years ago." OR perhaps that he/she bought it on ebay "over a year ago." This happens a lot with long-established brands; that is why as buyers (or sellers) I think it is really critical to know the history of the brands, the markings, etc. to be able to tell. Unfortunately, vintage BV doesn't fetch nearly the premium price of a recent (Thomas Maier) piece. That doesn't mean it's not a nice bag... just an FYI because the price being asked here is more in line with a recent, lightly used piece... and I think a buyer who received it thinking it was 2-3 years old would probably raise an issue (I know I would.) With clearer information/pics of the interior labels and adjusted pricing to reflect its age, I think it would be a pretty easy sell on a good bag that will hold up a long time.
