    They didn't make a Papillon in the Vernis. Do you mean the Bedford? It's similar in size to the largest Papillon (30). As far as I know, they no longer make the Bedford. The Papillon has changed recently. Originally it was available in three sizes (13, 26, and 30). The new version resembles the Bedford in that it has an exterior pocket on the end. The original Papillon did not have this. Not sure when they made that change.

    I saw in your other thread that you were asking who designed the Bedford. That would have been Marc Jacobs. He was creative director from 1997 to 2013. The Vernis line was one of the first things he introduced.

    ah your so helpful! thank you!! the bag was passed on from my mother to me so I don't know so much about it, but she's just confirmed it was the Bedford! Can you tell me anything about the materials of this bag? How did it get its shiny coating?

    It's patent leather. You can probably google the process for making patent leather.

    I don't recall any ads that featured this bag. Other Vernis styles have been featured in ad campaigns though.
