Carried extensively this is a Bal you won't need to baby.
A lovely muted pink shade there's lots of softening and creasing to the leather with areas of general dryness, colour fade and ageing.
Corners show rubbing, darkening and there is slight inking loss to the edging throughout the bag, (see Photo Gallery below)
The hardware is excellent with just slight dulling to the shoulder strap rings at the sides of the bag and there is colour varation between the bag and the mirror. The glass is very good with on hairline polish scratches.
Tassles are very softened and the shoulder straps, though still firm and well shaped, display wear to the underside showing the white underneath.
Clean, black cotton lined interior, without aroma.
A much nicer Bal in the flesh than a listing of its faults make it sound, its a bag that has lots and lots of love yet to give.
