SOLD Authentic Vintage Chanel Brown Lambskin Classic Flap Bag 2.55
Stunning Authentic Vintage Chanel Brown Lambskin 2.55 Classic Bag with Chain Strap. Gorgeous!! This is a wonderful find of vintage Chanel with serial # 1245865. The color is very rare and the bag is in its original state! This bag is from 1989- 1991 and has not been redyed! Very rare to find a Chanel of this age in this color that has not been redyed. The lambskin leather is as soft and cool as it was when created. The 24K gold plating is intact and still shines beautifully. There are no tears, very slight corner scuffs and no odor smell. There are some wrinkles and scratches on the leather, but frankly I would expect this on a piece almost 30 years old. Vintage Chanel is not the same as today's manufactured Chanel. The most important difference are the gold pieces on the bag. Prior to 2008, Chanel utilized 24K Gold plating on the gold parts of their bags. This offers a shiny finish, less scratches and durability for many years. This bag is truly a collector's dream.
There is such a
fascinating history of Chanel when you own a 2.55 bag. The iconic
quilted diamond lambskin leather makes up the exterior of the bag. The
gold tone twist closure works well and fits perfectly with the CC Logo.
The interior of the bag includes lovely hidden compartments such as the
small zippered pocket under the top outer flap. This is where Coco
Chanel hid her love letters (from her lover at the time). Just below the
zippered pocket is a hidden slip pocket. The additional leather flap opens to a non-traditional light brown Chanel leather lining. The interior pockets (2) along one side and the larger open compartment are all traditional interior layout in the Chanel bags.
