An amazingly characterful leather without marks, scratches or scuffs. All entirely colour consistent, no wear to the corners entirely without wear, just oodles of creases...... its stunning.
Hardware is very good, the zips run freely and smoothly and the interior self lined in ruffled suede displaying the usual age relation discolouration you often find in unlined, black vintage Mulberrys.
Inking, (edge sealent) is dry and worn to the top, side curves of the flap where its flexed being opened and closed and the webbed strap has rubbing to the edges from the friction of the buckle and a light, sit mark.
The reason for the * rating is due to a tear in the leather tab where the shoulder strap attaches. Shown in close up above, this is not visible in use. At present this does not affect the bag aesthetically or structurally but it may worsen with load and a repair will be recommended in time.
Made in China
