A super soft and slouchy hide, she puddles when empty, (see photo above) and has been loved just enough to give her that wonderful, crackly finish that only comes with time and care.
Very little actual wear, her corners are a little dry and rubbed and she has lots of natural creases, striations and surface scuffs that form part of the character of this distressed leather. A small catch to the LH side panel, near the base and a scratch to the fron RH lower side, all these blend completely with the finish.
Top handles are firm, whipstitching excellent and inking, (edge sealant) in place with minor drying to the loops that attach to the side O rings, as is so often seen on these pieces.
Harware is excellent and mirror without scratching or dulling, though the attached tassles have split and there is slight colour change, (see comparison above)
Fully lined in black cotton showing light marks as shown, with a side zipped pocket.
