This was known as a Coach Watermelon Satchel when it was sold in the catalog.A 1970's era Coach Catalog has a black and white drawing of this bag with the following beside it.

"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."

This 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's popularity is proof that "Bonnie Cashin is still in fashion — not that she ever really went away." See last October's issue of 'ON THE RUNWAY' featuring an article with the title: "Bonnie Cashin in the Spotlight at the Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show."

This Coach leather bag is one of the most sought after Coach products by collectors because it is a "New York City Bag". 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.

The overall condition of this purse is good. It has brass tone metal Double handles, and the infamous kiss lock coin purse on the outside. It also has one inside slip pocket. However, there is some wear. Each handle shows signs they were held dearly by their previous owner. Some of the kiss lock is worn. The beading on the corners is worn. There is also some scuffing and a small ink mark on the front of the bag. Please see photos and zoom in for closer inspection. The registration number is 749-6811

Dimensions:

H 10" X L 13.5" X D 3"

Handle drop: 3.5"
