This is a 100% authentic Mulberry Medium Sized Lily
in Black Soft Grain leather with shiny gold tone hardware.
A beautifully thick, supple and deeply grained hide in a wonderfully even and almost matte finish. In some lights she looks charcoal and others Navy...... rather chameleon-like and just so hardwearing.
A first review, this lovely Lily looks to be in an excellent condition.
Perfect leather without any wear, stitching all in place and the chain and leather intertwined shoulder strap is bright, shiny without dulling scratches or tarnish.
Protective film in place on the base plate, the underside of the top plate displays minor friction rubs and the Postmans Lock Plate some light hairline scratches and tiny surface dinks.
As is often seen with Lilys in this hide, the reverse develops a central 'dimple' where the Mulberry circular disc can been seen impressing from internally, (see photo provided)
A thick and supple silhouette, she will stand up empty but will flop if laid on her back, (see above) so the use of a felt liner may help to provide more structure if preferred. The felt liner depicted in the photos above is for illustrative purposes only and is not included in the sale.
The main reason for the condition rating is due to the small cracks to the inking, (edge sealent) at the top sides and flap rear. Caused by the flexing of the leather in use, these aren't noticable in use but have been reflected in the price.
Lined in clean, lightly ruffled black suede with a zipped pocket and leather trimmed slip section.
