Description

This is a Coach Watermelon Satchel. Coach assigned style number 9441 to this bag. It is my opinion the color is 'saddle' but I have included a Coach color chart from 1982 to let you decide for yourself. The creed has glued in registration number 215-­5934 and states the bag was made in New York City. According to my research, this bag was among the first to have a registration number. Immediately before this creed was used Coach bags had a cartouche without a registration number. The registration number was first introduced on a serial plate that was glued in below the creed. It appeared on bags in the the early 70s but was quickly replaced with a stamped registration number on the creed .

This Watermelon Kiss Lock Satchel and Tote was the product of Bonnie Cashin's kiss lock design and has become Bonnie Cashin's signature Coach bag for collectors. It was known as a Coach Watermelon Satchel when it was sold in the 1980's era Coach Catalogs. This satchel has double leather handles, solid brass hardware, and the infamous kiss lock coin purse on the outside. It also has one inside slip pocket. This is how the 1980's catalog described this style of bag:

"No. 9441
Watermelon Satchel- This early Coach classic combines best features of a zippered satchel and an open tote. Handy outside coin purse is leather covered, leather lined. Industrial zipper is solid brass. Extra pocket inside."

Dimensions:

Length: 13.5 inches
Height: 10 inches
Width: 3.5 inches

Handle drop: 3.5"

Condition:

This bag is in very good condition. It has no rips, tears or holes. All hardware functions properly. It is structurally sound. However, like most vintage bags it has some scuffs, scratches and spots. Please see photos for best depiction of condition and zoom in for closer inspection.

SIGNIFICANCE OF NYC COACH .

“New York City bags” are one of the most sought after Coach products by collectors. Pre-Creed bags are even more sought after primarily because they are scarce. These are some of the highest quality Coach products. "New York City" bags were made in the original Coach factory in New York City that operated from the late 1960's through the mid 1980's. Some, but not all, of the Coach bags produced during this era were designed by the well known American designer Bonnie Cashin. Consequently, when you buy a New York City Coach bag you are buying more than an accessory, you are making a potential investment.

If you prefer this in mocha or black, I have them in stock and you can see it at my shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/ProVintageGear

GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC OR ALL MONEY BACK. We understand there are counterfeits and knockoffs of vintage products by well known manufacturers for sale all over the internet and in other market places. We use multiple procedures to assure the products we sell are authentic. One procedure we use is to research authenticity through vintage manufacturer catalogs and to report our research in the listing. Sometimes we include a snippet from the catalog to corroborate our research and educate you about the history of the bag. The purpose of reporting what the manufacturer says about its product in the catalog is to verify our research on the authenticity and to educate you about how a vintage product was portrayed in the past. It is not intended to hold our shop out as a representative of the manufacturer. However, if it turns out we are wrong or our research is not correct we guarantee that if we sell you a product represented to be manufactured by a reputable company like Coach, Cole Haan, Ghurka, Filson, Christian Dior, Hartmann, Gucci, or any other company and you have competent evidence that the product is not authentic we will refund your purchase price and delivery cost. In addition, we will pay for return postage.
