An ex-display bag, just stored since purchase with tag attached, at first you'd be forgiven for thinking it was brand new.
Nicely shaped, a soft and supple hide.....though still holds its shape and will stand up when empty.....it will relax with use and become more slouchy with time.
Lots of capacity for everyday, its divided into three sections, the middle being lined in a hardwearing, cream grossgrain, the outer two are lined in a sumptious suede.
Whilst the leather itself is all colour consistent, you can see the bag has been on display as the little areas of suede at eact top corner that are visible beyond the leather flaps, have faded in the UV light and are a different colour to the interior. Not particulary noticable in use, this has been reflected in the price.
A tiny black dotting to the upper LH side of the front, an extremely vague linear mark to the rear LH shoulder strap, a dark rub to the central seam on the base and a black and white, pin head sized dot the the base, (see quad photo of all of these above).
The reason for the * rating is the very small, blue pen catch to the LH side panel of the bag, approx a quarter of the way down, on the seam, (present from the time of purchase).
Shoulder straps are uncreased and firm, hardware is As New and base corners display very light colouration rubs to the curves from sitting on the store shelf.
A much lovelier bag than a listing of her faults makes her sound, and a vintage treat, becoming harder to find in such a nice condition.
Made in England.
