The leather is wonderful. A dark, bitter chocolate colour and a deep grain, there scuffs and scratches to the front lower side and LH side panel and a natural, diagonal striation to the RH side of the base (all shown in the gallery above)
Positively oozing old school charm, the from embossed Mulberry tree is quirkily slightly off centre, all stitching is strong and the inking (edge sealent) is in place throughout.
Corners show light color rubbing, no real wear and the form of the bag is still quite stiff, though will become more slouchy with continued use.
The shoulder straps are slightly softened, though not stretched or sticky and the interior suede is ruffled with general marking and a little discoloration.
The main reason for the condition rating is due to the inevitable wear to the bronze finish of the hardware. A brass metal coated with a bronze layer, friction rubs can be noted on the buckle barrels, scratches to the rivets and strap D rings.
Made in England, the fabulous workmanship and style is the epitome of Mulberry's glory years and its a bag with many, many more years of service left to give.
