First introduced in 1955 in the Coco Chanel era, the Chanel classic flap bag is one of the most iconic handbags ever made. The epitome of effortless chic, this handbag has proven itself as a truly timeless piece. Made from the softest quilted lambskin and featuring Chanel’s signature diamond quilting and chain shoulder strap, this bag is as classic Chanel as it comes.
Features: Black quilted lambskin leather exterior; gold tone hardware; leather and chain interwoven sliding strap; rear exterior slip pocket; signature CC turnlock entry to top flap; internal zipper pocket in top flap; 2 x slip pockets between interior and exterior; domed closure from inner flap into the main compartment; burgundy leather lined main interior with 3 x slip pockets.
Origin: Made in France.
Measurements: 23.5 cm (length) x 14 cm (height) x 6.5 cm (width) x 24/42 cm (shoulder strap drop).
Condition: Great vintage condition. The leather exterior is in great condition with light rubbing to the edges and rear corners (one in particular, see photo), and faint creasing to the upper rear where the flap bends to open. The strap is also in great condition with light wear throughout including faint rubbing and light creasing to the leather. The hardware has a few tiny surface scratches to the CC turn lock. The underside of the first flap and top of the second flap show some light rubbing, surface scratches and indentations from contact with the internal zip hardware, as is common with this style. The leather lined main compartment is in great condition, with a few surface scratches and rubbing around the top edge, which gets heavier at one side (see photos), but presenting well overall.
Comes with: Chanel dust bag.
Authenticity: Authenticity Guaranteed.
