The Sheridan Collection from Coach was the premium, most expensive from the Coach line at the time of exclusive handbags. Not many were made and each was handcrafted from imported leather. The leathers were given a special perpetual treatment, which would afford any handbag chosen by Coach for this process to maintain the new look far beyond a normally tanned leather handbag. None are exactly the same. Being hand-made, each will have its own uniqueness typical with custom craftsmanship. The quality of this Sheridan Briefcase far exceeds many of the best today.
This magnificent example from the Sheridan Collection is the Sheridan Shoulder Brief Model 5269 and it is simply stunning. It is in the beautiful colors of Black and Mahogany Trim, in the Spectator style. These were the most expensive of the Sheridan Collection and still today, to own one of these is a true symbol of your success.
It is a Coach that any executive, doctor, attorney, or professional would appreciate.
This is a very rare, special vintage Coach. As with the Shoulder Brief Style #5230 in Glove-Tanned Cowhide, this is a Coach that was, according to Coach on the 5230’s debut, “The popularity of our Embassy Brief inspired the addition of the Shoulder Brief for businesswomen.” It is a Coach that still today is one of the most coveted but very hard to find. This gem is from the private collection and it is in excellent vintage condition.
The Shoulder Brief is a spacious Coach that is designed for the Lady with things to do and get done, wherever she may be. Perfect for the lawyer, executive, doctor, realtor, designer, or any professional who has their work with them but want to carry it in style. It is perfectly sized to carry a full-sized laptop with all of the peripherals, documents, a tablet, and your essentials with room to spare.
In your hands, the Black leather, and lots of it, greets you. The leather is full of color, shines like new and is glove-soft. Pull the over-sized, industrial zipper, which extends and snaps over the side to see the clean, Bronze Faille interior. There are only the faint signs of use inside but there is no ink. It is cavernous and has two full-length slip pockets to carry documents or a tablet PC. Inside the main compartment, there is a zippered security pocket that can itself hold up to a twelve-inch Surface computer with ease.
There is the creed that has no numbers as the early Sheridan models had no registration numbers.
Outside, the leather is clean and the piping is intact with only the minimal signs of very gentle use. The handles are long, padded, and allow for comfortable shoulder carry of this fine Coach. All of the solid brass is clean and tarnish-free and the bottom is also intact.
The original hang-tag is present on the brass chain. The hang-tags found on the Sheridan’s are also perpetually treated. Their hang-tags are larger than regular Coach hang-tags and is made from the same leather. For a Sheridan to be complete, it must match the trim.
This is a Coach that will make a statement and a great presentation. These models were expensive then and to make a model like this today, with the amount of leather on this Brief will be far more than a grand.
Seldom do you find one of these in such splendid condition and it shows the meticulous care this Coach received, as it deserved. These are investments.
The dimensions are 16 ½ “L x 11” H x 4 “D and the handles afford a 14 “drop.
