Black would be my voteWe all know that some of the vintage navy coach bags are very dark and may sometimes look black depending on the lighting.
I am trying to decide if the Pocket Purse I previously rehabbed is navy or black.
When I bought it, I was pretty sure it was navy - especially when looking at the under flap area, but after rehab it got darker and now I am not sure. Is there any way to check to determine if a dark vintage bag is navy or black?
Here are some pictures, what do you think? I don't want to mislead someone into thinking they are getting a navy bag when it might actually be black!

Pocket Purse after rehab - is it black or blue? It's shown between a black Patricia's Legacy and a Black Hobo:
Thanks for the advice! Just finished washing it with dawn (added a little white distilled vinegar too since it definitely smelled like a vintage coach bag :giggle:) and it's nice and stuffed and ready to be conditioned! Looks like the stain came out! Hopefully the stain will still be out when...forum.purseblog.com
You could also list it as black/very dark navy & then further explain the colour variation in your listing. That way, a buyer will know what to expect.
