I know its a "cambon model" but that info seemed incorrect.

    thanks
    From what I understand, most Cambon bags were made in Italy. I have, however, seen some Cambon totes that were made in France (Fashionphile has one for sale right now). Not sure about the other styles though.

    Hi everyone! I just received this bag from ebay and was hoping someone here could authenticate it for me! Attached are additional pictures I just took.

    Item Name: AUTH CHANEL Vintage Navy Blue Lamb Chain Flap Bag Purse
    Link: cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&_trksid=p4340.l2557&rt=nc&n ma=true&item=290548625925&si=60yvOcq59bbLCxHDRSvWn y8zfD4%253D&viewitem=#ht_7601wt_1139
    Seller: Top_Quality_Boutique
    Comments: Sticker seems to have fallen off. (Not found.)

    I'm worried because there's no quilting on the sides and bottom... Is that normal for some styles? Also, there are no screws on the hardware that I can find. The dustbag has no drawstring or holes where a string would go...

    Thanks in advance, ladies! <3

    I have never seen a plate for the clasp without screws like that. I'm not all that great with Chanel, so maybe one of the other girls will chime in.

    Default IS MY CHANEL BAG FAKE? HELP!

    Hi Ladies,

    So today my mother and I went thrift shopping!! While we were in the Goodwill I happened to spot this Chanel bag. I purchased the bag for like $1.99( so if it's fake no big deal ). But I'm very curious to know if it's are real or not. I was hoping some of you could help me out.

    The bag is black, leather ( both my parents tell me it's real leather ), it has tassels, on one side of the bag it's quilted with the CC's in the middle of a diamond, the top of the right C is over the left and the bottom of the left C is over the right. On the other side it is not quilted but has two very large CC's with the same top right over left and bottom left over right.

    The bag is about 12" in length and about 9" in height ( I estimated ). There is no hardware on the bag besides the part that holds the tassels in place and they are very heavy and gold. The strap is just a black leather strap that is quilted.

    This bag is very old and looks vintage, there is no serial number anywhere on the bag. I have read in some forums that they didn't start putting the serial numbers on there until after the 90's so maybe this is a real vintage piece!

    If anybody could give me the slighted idea of what you think please let me know I would greatly appricate it, of if you knew a place you could go to see if its a real thing please let me know!! Also I can add pictures but I don't have any taken at the moment but I will put some up soon!

    Thank you so much for the help,
    StephLovesBags!

    hmm... really hard to make a comment if this is authentic or not. best way to find out is if you go to a chanel shop and ask. OR you check out the price. then you ll know. if its under 1000 usd...probably not authentic

    another way to check: the leather should be made from lamb leather. that is a very soft leather and when you touch it you just want to cry that s how soft it is.

    Can you post pictures for us? For $1.99 it's most likely a replica. Also, Chanel will not authenticate if you bring it in to them and ask.

    It kind of looks like PVC but obviously hard to tell from the pictures. Is there a hologram sticker inside? What does the interior look like and where does it says it was made?

    The inside is made of the same material is really soft, & if it did have any kind of sticker there isn't anything on the inside, the bag is really old,

    I think it's a fake. The thing that is bothering me is that way in which the CHANEL and MADE IN FRANCE are aligned. The font looks a little weird too. Also the CC in the front is too squished - and it looks like two different interlocking CCs in the picture of the bag and the close up.
