CHANEL Tortoiseshell Bakelite Mini Box Bag 1994-1996
This mini box bag is a unique piece that has been crafted from tortoiseshell Bakelite, a type of plastic that was popular during the early 20th century. The bag is designed in the iconic Chanel box style, which is known for its square shape and angular lines. The combination of the tortoiseshell material and the mini box shape makes for a striking, timeless design that has captured the hearts of fashion lovers around the world.
Despite its popularity, the Chanel Tortoiseshell Bakelite Mini Box Bag is a relatively rare item, and there are now very few examples left that are in good condition. This has only added to the allure of the bag, making it a highly desirable item for collectors and Chanel fans alike.
