This is a very vintage bag. 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. The Serial Number 274017 indicates this is a very vintage bag!! It is from the 80's and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Authenticate First.
Condition: VINTAGE - Dyed - This bag is 30 years old! The bag has been dyed to a Salmon Rose Pink color. The leather is not as soft as it once was because of the dye. The corners of the flap show some creasing/cracking and the metal rivets and turnkey are original and show tarnish and age. The interior is used but clean with no large stains and no odor.
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 the traditional burgundy Chanel leather lining. This color represents the uniform that Coco Chanel wore while growing up at the convent. So interesting! The interior pockets (2) along one side and the larger open compartment are all traditional interior layout in the Chanel bags.
