At first glance this fabulous Mulberry looks almost new. Well shaped and still stiff, showing very little evidence of use.
Corners are perfect, inking (edge sealant) is in place, shoulder straps are well shaped and firm and the patent is glossy and glorious throughout.
Some creasing to the top flap, as happens with this style, but really only visible when you angle the bag so the light displays this, its much less noticable to the naked eye.
The dark silver hardware compliments the finish beautifully. Just light friction rubs between the plates, scratching to base feet and the turnlock end, though the actual front postmans lock is in an excellent condition with only slight rubbing around the turnlock hole (virtually imperceptible)
The reason for the condition rating is some extremely well camoflagued marks* to the exterior patent, only visible on very close inspection. A light, curved grey shadowy line to the front, which blends in almost perfectly with the pattern, a thin red pen mark to the RH base corner, an incredibly vague cluster of surface marks to the base, a thin blue pen line and one very small black mark on the reverse near the base, (all shown in the photo gallery below). You'd never see these if you didn't know they were there, (the previous owner didn't spot them!) and they aren't visible unless you really look for them.
The interior is fully lined in clean, soft black suede showing light use.
