    Good to Very Good Condition
    13" Width x 9" Height x 4" Depth
    Few handbags have stood the test of time quite like Chanel's flap bag. Originally introduced in February 1955 as the 2.55 bag, it has been produced with slight variations since then. When Karl Lagerfeld became the brand's creative director in 1983 he created what is now known as the classic flap, a take on Coco Chanel's 2.55 bag by adding the CC logo at the turnlock closure and interweaving leather into the chain strap. This particular classic flap bag features one of the most sought after leather and hardware combinations. Done in black lambskin leather this bag features Chanel's signature diamond quilting and Gold Hardware. Additionally this bag features CC turnlock closure, chain link shoulder straps which can be worn single or doubled, and a rear exterior slip pocket. The interior of this bag is done in burgundy lambskin leather with one slip pocket and one zip pocket.

    This bag is in Good to Very Good Condition. There are a few very visible signs of wear to the leather at the rear exterior of the bag. There is light wear to the base corners as well as the leather along the bag's shoulder straps. There scratching to the hardware. There are some scratches and make-up stains to the bag's interior leather. This bag comes with a Chanel dustbag, and box.
