Excellent vintage condition, now. This poor briefcase had certainly lived a full life before coming to Villa Milagro! A true testament to Coach's enduring quality; the leather itself (in glorious British Tan) was in fantastic shape, just a minor darkened mark on the outside base. The D rings were replaced with some salvaged Coach parts, the swivel was fixed, and a new zipper pull created by yours truly. The bag was then bathed, slowly dried, brass polished, and leather deep conditioned a couple of times. This rare gem is now ready to live its' next life!
