This gorgeous satchel is the very rare New York City Small Satchel designed by Bonnie Cashin for Coach. A true satchel, this pristine Indigo beauty is significant because it looks exactly as the City Bag, only smaller. However, this fine 1970’s Coach made its debut long before the City Bag and is made of the extra rich and thick Glove tanned cowhide. It even has the adjustable, non-removable strap as the City Bag.
Another notable difference between this Small Satchel and the similar sized Pockets is this Small Satchel has the flap covering two-thirds of the front whereas on the Pockets, and the Dinky, the strap fully covers the front. It is also taller in stature. From a private collection, this Small Satchel is in excellent condition.
When you feel the pillow-soft leather of this fabulous gem, you would never believe the condition and the quality. There are no issues. Handmade in the original NYC shop of thick, rich Glove Tanned Cowhide in the stunning color of Indigo, a Dark Navy, it is clean inside and out. Not one ink mark or stain. Open the gleaming turn-lock to be greeted by a velvet soft suede interior and the smell of clean leather. There is a single slip pocket with the creed and numbers: 533-5841 which were true serial numbers. Coach was under copyright at that time.
Under the flap is a full length slip pocket. On the back is another full-length slip pocket that is spotless clean as well. All of the leather, piping, and metalwork is clean and tarnish-free. The strap is supple and even in color. The leathers shine with a brilliance unseen in many handbags today. This is a stunning vintage Coach. The hang-tag is not present but only to the new owner, I will provide the information to obtain a brand new, genuine hang-tag and chain at no cost to you. You will receive your new hang-tag in about 14 days.
This is a Coach that is like no other as it is a very, very rare model and it fits right in fashion today.
The dimensions are 8" L x 6" H x 3" D and the strap is 42" long. Long enough to carry cross-body.
