Recessed zip closure along the top, with a golden CD charm pull. Dully lined in black monogram fabric. Metal feet at bottom side for elegant standing.

Condition: Excellent overall condition. The line you see on the handle is fishing line used to hold the handles up for the purpose of photography. Some creasing along the zipper line from use. Some minor indentations to inner side of one of the handles. Light marks here and there along edges and handles. Some minor oranging to glue along some of the edges. Minor creasing to bottom. Some scratches to the golden DIOR charms, primarily the O, as you can expect from them touching each other, and some marks to the white leather circle that rests underneath them. The shoulder strap was in original paper before we photographed it and had never been used, subsequently there is some creasing when it is opened flat from storing it long term like that, most of which should work itself out over time with use. It presents beautifully and you'd be hard pressed to find another in better condition than this!
