Description

This is a beautiful Black leather Coach Carrier Bag in very good condition. The creed has registration number 0278-214 stamped on it and states it was made in the United States.

The Coach Carrier is another Coach bag exhibiting an old style in a new world. Like the Musette, Courier and Prairie Bag this bag looks like something that you would see an early American or French pioneer carrying while hiking across the country.

To the casual observer, the Carrier looks like the Coach Musette but the two have some definitive differences which had to be pointed out to me by my friend and Coach mentor Diane. The Carrier is often confused with a ‘Musette’ by those selling this bag. However, there are differences both size and features. The Musette is smaller at 16" x 9" x 4" while the Carrier is 17.5 x 10.5 x 5". Moreover, the Carrier has a full length back slip pocket while the Musette has no back slip pocket. I can track the Musette as far back as 1981 which is as far back as my catalogs go. However, according to my catalog collection, the Carrier was introduced in the Coach 1987 Holiday catalog. This is taken verbatim from the Catalog:

"New No 9800 Carrier Bag

"Just introduced this extra large bag for men and women has already gained favor among consumers who shop our Coach Stores. Appreciated for its versatility as a business brief and as a day-today- bag – it is designed for anyone who carries a lot in the course of the day. Its full 5" width accommodates a large number of legal size files as well as overnight essentials. A full-length outside back pocket keeps notepads and magazines handy. The two room gusseted pockets under the front flap and the inside drop pocket keep smaller items organized. The 46" detachable shoulder strap adjusts with solid brass buckles.

Dimensions

Length: 17.5 inches
Width: 10.5 inches
Height: 5 inches

Strap length: 46 inches

Black, British Tan, Burgundy , Mocha" [ See attached collage picture above showing a copy of the 1987 Holiday Catalog listing of the "New" Carrier where it is listed on the same page as a Musette.]

Condition:

This Carrier is in very good condition. It is structurally sound as the day it was made. It has no rips, tears, or holes. The hardware works as intended. However, like most vintage bags it has scuffs and scratches primarily on the bottom and on the leather beading. Please see photos for best depiction of the condition of this bag.

We have another Coach Carrier in Mocha at the time this bag is being listed. Please link to this if interested:

This item was shipped off extremely quickly and arrived fairly quickly, even though it had to go through customs. The bag itself was described correctly in terms of condition, the only critique I might have is that perhaps a better resolution image might be more helpful, I wondered if the photo quality was just an etsy issue but I think it might be camera related. That being said, I struggled to find this particular bag anywhere else and I'm very happy to have it. Thanks very much!

Great piece. Seller shipped quickly.

This is where I would say "would be again" but this item is such quality that I'm expecting to keep using it for the rest of my life. However I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the seller.

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.
