Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel opened a Parisian millinery shop in the early 1900s. By the 1920s she was revolutionizing the world of women's fashion. The interlocking double-C logo is synonymous with elegance and high French style. Under the creative leadership of Karl Lagerfeld since 1983, the House of Chanel continues to set the standard for designer quality and desirability. Made of slightly-bowed lucite panels - one side black, the other white with an inside silver frame and leather inset sides and bottom. The top kiss lock features one black knob with a white double C logo and one white knob with black double C logo. This is a must for the serious Chanel collector.
