Description

This Pre Orderly Creed Coach Prescott case is a rare gem among vintage briefcases. As you can see from the pictures, the product stamp states it was made in the U.S. It also has the designation "Leatherware" under the Coach name in the stamp. According to the Coach experts I consult with the raised lettering for "Leatherware" means means this bag was created in the New York City factory as opposed to some other US factory.

There just aren't many Prescott style cases currently available for sale online or otherwise. Especially where the bag, like this one, was made in New York City.

The case is made from glove tanned leather and brass turn lock hardware. It has a large outer pocket, 2 front pockets under flap (left with small additional pocket, right with 2 pen holders), and an adjustable detachable leather strap with a comfort pad.

In the 1994 Coach Holiday Preview Catalog, this Prescott was listed for $360.00. Coach suggested the Prescott along with three other briefcase styles [the Metropolitan, Embassy, and Document styles] were an ideal "Executive Gift with Extraordinary Quality". Of the four briefcases listed, the Prescott was the most expensive.

According to the Coach Catalog: "The Prescott is a legal-sized briefcase for both men and women. Full-length outside back pocket. Two front gusseted pockets with business card pocket and two pen holders under leather lined flap. Inside zipper pocket. Double brass turn lock closure. 46" Adjustable shoulder strap with shoulder pad detaches. 16" x 3.5" x 10.5". Available in Black, bottle green, British tan and mahogany."

Dimensions:

Length: 16 inches
Height: 10.5 inches
Width: 3.5 inches

Strap: 46 inches

Condition:

This bag is in very good condition. There are no rips, tears or holes. The bag is structurally sound and the hardware functions properly. However, there is a sign of a repair of the beading on the bottom of the bag where it appears the beading was unraveling and leather glue was used to secure the beading. The clear glue shows on one small spot on the bottom. Moreover, like most vintage bags, this bag has scuffs and scratches and the brass hardware has tarnished from use over time. However, these add to the patina of the bag. We have thoroughly cleaned and conditioned this bag with leather CPR which is a product favored by many Coach collectors who rehab their bags. Please see photos for best depiction of condition.

IT'S THE REAL THING PLEDGE. If we sell it, it's the real thing. We guarantee it's the real thing or you get your money back including your delivery costs we this pledge:

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.
