    Default CHANEL LOVERS! Name this bag...

    Greetings Bag Lovers:

    Am interested to know if you Chanel experts out there can "Name that Chanel." What's the name? Collection is it from? What year this style was released? A challenge to you!

    Seriously? No takers? I really need to find out...can anyone refer me to someplace else that would be able to identify this handbag?

    I don't know much about Chanel. I do know that a lot of their bags don't really have names, at least not names that would necessarily distinguish one from another (there are a zillion "flap" bags). I have never seen the style pictured, so I don't know anything about it. I did look on Malleries though and I found a few flap bags with the same horizontal stitching pattern as yours. Maybe they are from the same collection? Anyway, their serial numbers are 7-digits and they begin with 2. So that would mean they were produced between 1991 and 1994. Here are the links to the bags I was looking at:
    Chanel Black Flap Classic Shoulder Bag CC Chain S914 | MALLERIES
    Chanel Beige Caviar Jumbo Flap Bag | MALLERIES

    Hopefully that helps you some (or at least points you in the right direction).

    Thanks a ton...BoysRSmelly! (BTW, I like the screen name...gave me a good chuckle). Actually, the handbag does not belong to me. Someone is selling it and this is the photo they provided. She refers to it as the "Large Grand Shopper," but when I looked online they look nothing like this purse. Which made me question her handbag. I'm not familiar with Chanel to know when this handbag style came out or if its a knock off of some sort. I don't think it is since the Owner of the bag has a few others for sale (Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Coach Limited Edition, etc.) Thank you for taking the time to help a bag lover out!

    Yeah, I would have no clue if the style was ever even produced. Is this the auction?
    CHANEL Grand Caviar CLASSIC COCO Shopper Tote bag | eBay
    I see in their feedback that someone bought something Chanel from them and they claimed it was fake. You could always try posting this auction in the Chanel authentication thread. If any of the Chanel girls are around, they might be able to give you a better idea.

    Hmm, says in the description that there is a Chanel boutique receipt from a refurbishment. Chanel wouldn't do repairs on a fake bag.

    Thanks for the tip...I did not know of the Chanel thread - will try that avenue. The item is being sold from someone in my neighborhood, not on eBay. But, I don't know this person at all to ask them, "Is this real?"

    Did you look at the ebay auction? The reason I asked if that was the auction is because the picture you provided is the exact same one as in the auction.

    OMG! Sorry, I tried to look at the eBay link you sent me on the phone and the darn thing timed out on me. I'm on the computer now, and you are so AWESOME! This is it! I actually recognize the Seller's screen name. Let me read it now....

    Did you end up buying the bag? Was it real?

    eBay is so scary with handbags, I would never buy a bag without authenticating it first... and then authenticating it AGAIN with my own photographs once the bag arrives. (old bait and switch trick by sellers) Just because someone SAID it was refurbished at the Chanel boutique doesn't necessarily mean that it's true

    Hi,
    I didn't buy the handbag after all on ebay....just too rich for my blood. I did however, end up buying another one of her handbags for sale, which was authentic. You can never be too sure out there! Speaking of Chanel bags...I'm interested in buying (pre-owned) one...I'm open to recommendations of where I can locate one w/o the worry that I'm being scammed. Any websites/companies that are reputable for selling authentic, high end handbags?
