Part of Mulberrys classic collection, the smaller sized Antony is a perfect hands-free day bag. A little too compact for a continental purse......... a compact wallet. small pouch, keys and phone fit just nicely.
Though its rare for the Nest to sell such an aged bag, this Antony is all completely structurally sound and even more lovely for all the use he's received.
The leather is glossy with a fabulous texture thats developed though time and care and though he's nicely softened there are no marks, scuffs or scratches.
Drying and crackling to the inking (edge sealent) at the top, the side flap curves show some loss where they flex and the base corners have softened with general wear, see photos above.
The interior suede is ruffled and discoloured as happens with use, particularly the underside of the flap. There is a useful slip pocket to the front of the bag, beneath the top flap.
The Postmans Lock Plate is quite scratched, though this adds to his vintage charm and there is friction rubbing between the plates. The turnlock shows loss of finish and the Drings again are scratched with wear to the interior curves.
The webbed cross body strap is firm, generally without wear but very slightly faded and there are the usual 'sit' impressions where the buckle has previously sat.
A much nicer Antony that a list of his faults makes him sound and a real testimony to the longeivity of Mulberry..... a bag with many more years of service left to give.
