The Plaza Bag by Coach are very distinctive, luxurious handbags. What makes this Plaza Bag different and more unique is this is the Petite model. Long discontinued and highly sought after today, the Plaza Bag is very rare. The Petite Plaza is identical to the Large Plaza Bag but it is smaller overall in width at 9 ½” wide as compared to the Large Plaza Bag which, is 11” wide, and 3” in depth as compared to 4” D for the Large Plaza. This outstanding Plaza has no issues.
With its distinct styling and the Bel-Aire handle on the top, you can easily transform this beauty to a business satchel or formal occasion handbag. This gem is sized to carry what you need including a small tablet computer. It is very spacious and perfect for the professional or for travel.
The color is Jet Black and the leather is butter soft, thick, and rich. It is spotless clean inside and out. Open the flap and the suede is like velvet and smells like clean leather. Just under the flap is a pocket. There is a single pocket inside with the creed and registration number: 01228901. If you are familiar with Coach registration/serial numbers, you will see that there was an error when it was stamped.
You see, at the time this Coach was made, in the late 1980’s in New York City, Coach was still using a hand stamp machine to apply the creed and numbers to each handbag, briefcase, and tote. Not often, but there were a few errors in the application of the creed and numbers. Most of the time, those handbags were both destroyed and in later times, sold in outlets. Not so with this one and that is what makes this one truly unique, and very rare.
If you look closely at the creed, about one o’clock, it was stamped, “Irregular.” Keep in mind, that does not detract from this bag and it is a genuine, vintage Coach. It is also, a genuine collectible not only because of the number error but, because of the rarity of this model in general. The registration/serial numbers should more than likely have read: 012-8901 or 0122-901. This is vintage classic, U. S. made original.
Through the 25+ years of owning Coach Handbags, I have had only a couple of vintage Coach Handbags that displayed this rare error. It actually made them even more collectible, like an error on a minted coin.
The original hang tag is present on the solid brass chain.
On the outside, the leather is so rich you can see the full grain. The strap is attached by solid brass dog leash clips that are clean and tarnish free. On the back, there is another full-length pocket. All of the brass is clean. The strap is clean and supple.
There are no marks on the leather and the piping is intact and gleams with brilliance. It is truly a rare Coach that will bring many compliments. No one will have one like this. It looks and feels luxurious in every way. This is a great Coach you will love.
The dimensions are 9 ½” L x 8” H x 3 ½” D and the removable strap is 42” long. Perfect to carry across your body.
