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 black quilted lambskin with a gold plated chain and leather interwoven strap, this vintage flap bag is as classic Chanel as it comes.
Features: Quilted black lambskin exterior; gold tone hardware; leather and chain interwoven strap which can be worn as a single long strap or a doubled-up shorter strap; rear exterior slip pocket; CC turnlock entry to top flap; reveals internal zipper pocket in top flap and 2 x slip pockets between interior and exterior; domed entry to second flap into main compartment; contrast burgundy leather lined interior with 3 x slip pockets.
Origin: Made in France.
Measurements: : 25 cm (length) x 7 cm (width at base) x 16 cm (height) x 23/42 cm (shoulder strap drop).
Condition: Great vintage condition. The exterior leather is in great condition, with a few light creases above the base and around the right corner. This bag has been treated at a bag spa, and as such the exterior lambskin is no longer as buttery smooth and has a texture more similar to calfskin leather. This also means that the exterior is slightly more durable. The hardware overall is in great condition, there are light scratches throughout and the turn component of the lock, as well as some areas of the strap have rubbed, resulting in a slight loss of gold tone – though this isn’t particularly noticeable . The interior area between the top and second flaps has light indents where the internal zip/chain has rubbed, which commonly occurs in this style bag over time with use. The leather lined interior is clean and in great condition.
Comes with: Chanel dust bag.
Authenticity: Authenticity Guaranteed.
