I had a gift by my boyfriend's mother:a vintage prada bag!!!!!!!
The bag is old but wonderful!!!
It's perfect but I've looked inside and I haven't found serial number!!
I Don't know Prada bag...I've just chlòe and vuitton bags..so I don't know if in Prada bag there is a serial number to prove the authenticity...
My friend said to me that vintage bag doesn't have a serial number: she has got one vintage dior bag and there isn't serial number..
So..please help me..
What do you think about?
I'm afraid....

Now I can't..I'll post pics tomorrow..But what do you think about serial number? It's possible that vintage prada bag doesn't have it?

I would like to know this too! I just got a gift from a family friend.. it's a quilted nylon prada bag with gold chain/leather intertwined straps (like the Chanel ones). It's probably at least 10-20 years old or more I'm guessing.. I can't find a serial number in it either.

(modema I hope you don't mind me hijacking your thread.. I was going to start a new one asking the same question but then I saw yours!)

The gold rings are stamped PRADA, the lining also says PRADA, and the snap button that closes the bag is stamped "FIOCCHI ITALY".
The inside metal plate reads:
PRADA
MILANO
MADE IN ITALY
Please let me know your opinions.. thanks!

I don't know the nylon Prada bags at all, and so can't comment on the authenticity of this particular style, but Prada bags don't have serial numbers inside.

that's an authentic vintage Prada. seems to be in good condition. prada bags generally don't have serial numbers. (SOME bags have an extra leather tag on the inside zipper but those are rare.)

This is a great bag! I like it... what a nice gift you got Sorry I can't tell if it's authentic or not since I'm not a Prada expert, but it has the same tags and interior as mine, and the girls here say mine is authentic, so I bet yours is too!

does your bag comes with the authenticity card? i am only aware of a little small white tag with one or two numbers that is located in the inner pocket of most prada bags. other than that, no serial numbers.

The prada's r isnt curved in. So its abit doubty compared to the authentic ones. Well, im not an expert on prada but im guessing its unauthentic. Maybe you should check at the stores?
