Can anyone, please, tell me what color this is ??? Is it Wine? The color IRL is deep red (less brown than in pics). This bag is an older bag with old hardware and tassels.

Thanks!

Ok, I looked through a few threads on bags in Wine and it seems that this bag is not Wine. The back of the tassels (suede part) is brown, not red like on Wine bags...

Can anyone help?

Oh, what about Chestnut??



ETA: Not espresso for sure, I forgot espresso has silver hardware! From what I can tell I am thinking Chestnut. It's pretty!

Glazed almond:



Looks the same as chestnut? :confused1: :shrugs:

Edit: Oh, maybe GA has more of a 'glazed' finish than chestnut?

Here's berry too:



But I think berry is too smooth for it to be this and it doesn't appear to be purple-y enough.

could you post a few more pics for me please. There is a glare on the first pic which makes it look more brown. From pic 1 it looks like chestnut but in pic two it looks like glazed espresso. I'm pretty sure seeing how the bag is broken in its chestnut as tloveshim stated. Berry is a little darker than wine with some purple undertones, this bags too brown to be berry.

Desi, I had a matinee that I believe was glazed almond but one reason I didn't keep it was because of the silver hardware. Was glazed almond made with gold hardware on the mams and mabs but with silver on matinees or am I thinking wrong?

Thank you so much for helping me figure this out!!!! I'll post more pics taken in artificial light (since it's dark outside right now). Maybe the color will come out better. Please check back a little later.

I believe there was some glazed almond that came with gold brass hw. Honestly this bag doesn't look super shiny the way glazed bags do unless if its really broken in. Likeafeather I'll check back in for more pics later :smile:

In the moment
It is not glazed almond and it is not chestnut- I know this for sure.

There was a "toffee" color a while back and this reminds me of that color but I think it could also pass for glazed espresso although it looks a bit light for GE.. could be the lighting though.

Edit to add: I'm pretty sure it it is Glazed Espresso now that I see that you said it is more of a deep red. GE has very deep red undertones but shows up more brown in pics. It's a lovely color.

How is the leather? Does it have a glaze?? It looks like it does but maybe I'm wrong.
