For the collectors of vintage Bonnie Cashin for Coach, this is a 1960s Bonnie Cashin for Coach Mini Shopper. This is a handmade original from a private collection and it is in excellent original condition. What's more is this fine Coach has not been reconditioned, ever.
The first thing you notice is the sheen of the Black Glove-Tanned Cowhide. Then you will see that brilliant Mexican striped interior. This is an open little tote and to the sharp eye, there will be no doubt that this is a rare Bonnie Cashin Coach.
Inside, it is clean and the fabric has an iridescence to it. The stripes have the thin Black dividers and the metal Coach badge showing this is a very early model. There is a single slip pocket to which the badge is attached and it is clean. Upon looking very closely, there are a couple of fine, organic marks that can easily be removed. They are insignificant and of no issue.
Outside, the “spaghetti handles” are made into the body and are flawless. No cracks or splits, they are both supple and tight.
The leathers are so rich and thick that it is hard to believe that this gorgeous Coach is close to 60 years old. The sheen and colour are even and the bottom is also flawless. It rests on four brass feet.
The hangtag is present on the solid brass chain.
This beautiful Coach measures in at 6 ½ “L x 7” H x 3” D and the handles afford a 5 ¼” drop.
As always, this fine Coach will come to you shipped with the utmost care via UPS or USPS Priority Mail with insurance. Never a handling charge, just the exact shipping to your zip code. I ship all over the world and will gladly combine shipping on multiple purchases.
