First introduced in 1955 during 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 lambskin leather, and featuring Chanel’s signature diamond quilting, this bag is as classic Chanel as it comes.
Features: Black quilted lambskin leather exterior with smooth leather base and sides; gold tone hardware; sliding chain shoulder strap; rear exterior slip pocket; vintage CC turnlock entry to top flap; 2 x slip pockets between interior and exterior; zipped pocket on the underside of the top flap; domed closure from inner flap into the main compartment; burgundy lambskin leather lined interior with 3 x slip pockets.
Origin: Made in France.
Measurements: 26 cm (length) x 18 cm (height) x 7.5 cm (width) x 17 – 30 cm (shoulder strap drop).
Condition: Great vintage condition. The leather exterior is in great condition with light to moderate creasing throughout, light surface scratches, and the odd small mark. The hardware, including chain shoulder strap, is in great condition with faint surface scratches throughout. The CC turnlock has some slight loosening and play in the centre turn-piece, but remains in fully functional condition currently. The smooth leather underside of the top flap shows light creasing and light surface scratches, with some indents and light rubbing to the top of the second flap from contact with the hardware. The interior is in great condition with light rubbing and light surface scratches throughout, as well as some tiny indentations to the base. Note this vintage bag has a rare 'reversed' CC turnlock, and was produced pre 1986 and thus has no serial sticker.
Comes with: Luxe.It.Fwd dust bag.
Authenticity: Authenticity Guaranteed.
