At first glance, this fabulous Lily appears to be in an almost new condition. Clean, bright patent without any wear, perfect corners, intact inking and shiny hardware (any white 'marks' in the Photo Gallery below are purely reflections of the light)
However, on close inspection you can note a few light impressions to the reverse of the bag, (where it has been stored next to the chain) and some minor dulling and scratching to the chain shoulder strap.
Light friction rubs between the lockplates, the Postmans Lock Plate is very good with a few hairline scratches and light scratching to the turnlock end (see Photo Gallery below).
The main point to note is the lifting of the patent in two places* on the interwoven chain shoulder strap, at the points where glue has been applied by the craftsman in construction. Part of the natural make-up of the bag these are very well camoflagued and you wouldn't notice them unless you knew they were there. Reflected in the price, this doesn't affect the use of the bag in any way.
Fully lined in an entirely clean, thick beige suede with a zipped side pocket.
