A lovely supple, unstructured Alexa, (see photo of when she's empty) in a glorious, deep inky blue tone, the leather is in a super condition throughout. No peeling or lifting up of the scales, no wear to the corners, its a much less delicate finish than most people imagine.
As an intricately hand-carved leather, it will immediately show dimension and due to its inherent nature, the scales will begin to curl very slightly at the edges with the natural movement of the bag. This is a characteristic of the hide and not a fault.
The plait top handle is still firm with some wear to the inking (edge sealant), the rest of the bags inking is all intact.
Scratching to the metal clad strap tips at the front of the bag, friction rubbing between the top and bottom lock plates with a little finish loss to the RH side of the base plate, showing the paler silver beneath.
Hairline scratches to Postmans Lock Plate, the turnlock end is very good, (see Photo Gallery below).
As this lovely Lexy has mainly been carried by hand, the D Rings and shoulder strap are very good, with just a light sit mark where the buckle has been set.
The interior is lined in clean, black Mulberry Tree repeat fabric with a leather trimmed slip section and zipped pocket.
