    Chanel Gold Cage Beaded Medium Flap Bag with Gold Hardware
    Good to Very Good Condition
    10" Width x 6.5" Height x 2.5" Depth
    Since Karl Lagerfeld became the Creative Director of Chanel in 1983, the brand has produced innovative designs that reflect a fresh take on Coco Chanel's original visions for the brand. This flap is indicative of such a design approach. This bag offers a fresh take on one of the world's most timeless and sought after handbags. There are times when Chanel chooses aesthetics over functionality and this is indeed one of those times. The body of this bag is done in a transparent case and topped with gold beads in Chanel's classic diamond shape. This bag features the CC logo at the turnlock closure and a snake rope shoulder strap. This bag is a must have for any Chanel collector or someone looking to make a daring yet elegant statement.

    This bag is in Good to Very Good Condition. There is light scratching to the hardware throughout, and scratching to the transparent case. There are white scuffs to the transparent case near the base, behind each of the beaded quilted diamonds meet the base frame on all four exterior sides.
