Ultra matte, super soft and puffy, the lambskin is divine.
Well shaped and with little actual 'wear', this fabulous Chanel is not perfect though. 2 small marks to the front, beneath the flap, one to the LH side panel, one to the middle of the top flap at the front and a glue mark the the interior curve of the RH side of the flap. (All shown in close up photos in the Gallery below)
Corners show a luttle rubbing and a very tiny amount of darkening but the main point to note is the internal 'holding' stitch* on the RH side has loosened with the thread remaining exposed to the side. Often seen on these pieces, this doesn't affect the use of the bag but it is recommend that this stitch is tightened to restore this bag to its full glory.
Hardware is very good with just light scratches to the interlocking CC claps and the chain and leather shoulder strap is very good also, with only light signs of use, no tarnish, dulling or oxidisation.
The interior is clean and smooth, with a light mark to the main compartment against the back wall and some extremely light fingernails scuffs.
A minor pressure indent to the inside top flap on the LH side from the interior zip, can also be noted as is commonly seen on this style.
Overall an incredibly beautiful Chanel flap with a few tiny marks that easily pass unnoticed. With the minor repair to the side stitch this will be an heirloom piece.
Made in France.
