This is a brand new*, 100% authentic, Mulberry Medium Mabel
in Cognac Smooth Saddle leather with shiny silver tone hardware.
RRP in 2008 was £695
One of Mulberry's classic designs the Mabel is now a vintage style but still packs a punch on every level.
Lots of capacity, easy to use, robust and just so beautiful with its gentle, pleated curves and rounded silhouette.....its a rare treat to find an unused one, crafted from such a fabulous hide.
Divided into three sections, the middle being lined in hardwearing, red grossgrain, with a side zip security pocket and sealing with a smooth running riri zip. The outer two are lined in super-soft, deep nap suede and the top strap comes over to close by way of a self locating popper (beneath the faux buckle)
The luggage label with disc, hangs to the side and there are two, useful little zip pockets to the front.
An incredibly finely grained leather, this finish is prone to surface scuffs* and scratches as part of its inherent nature.
Thick, semi structured, though will relax with use, there are lots of characterful striations, gentle burnishings (particularly corners and curves) as created by the manufacturing process, see last collage of photos above, illustrationg this finish.
With use and time, these do blend and form part of the character of these pieces.
All inking, (edge sealent) and stitching in place, there is a small streak of stray inking* to the lower, RH front of the bag and similarly to the reverse of the hanging luggage tag, as present from the time of purchase (see photos above).
