At first glace this fabulous Mulberry appears to be in a superb, nearly new condition. Protective film remains in place on all the lockplates, inking and stitching are pristine, the turnlock end is unscathed and the corners are immaculate with no evidence of use.
On close inspection you can note some light scratching to the circular rings of the top handle, the D Rings at either side of the bag where the long shoulder strap clips attach and four pin head sized dots to the surface of the leather, (see Photo Gallery below).
As is often found on the lighter coloured leather, the adhesive residue has discoloured very slightly in two small spots, on the underside of the top handle and the long strap, at one end. Extremely minor, these are not visible in use.
The reason for the * rating is the small pen marks to the interior. A catch to the lining near the bottom of the lining and some dots on the leather of the inside, rear facing trim. Again, you'd never notice these unless you knew they were there and do look much worse in the close up photo than to the naked eye.
(Please note the formation of the top flap over the pushlocks is part of the natural construction of the bag)
