Well shaped though not a solid bag, the leather is in a lovely condition throughout. A much less delicate finish than most people imagine, there's no peeling or lifting away of the scales and its nicely supple, moulding to your side for comfort. Pop a felt liner inside for a less casual look, its a bag that can be dressed up or down with your mood.
Colour consistent, a proper 'navy' blue tone and, as an intricately hand-carved finish, it will immediately show dimension and due to its inherent nature, the scales will begin to curl very slightly at the edges with the natural movement of the bag. This is a characteristic of the hide and not a fault.
No real wear, just the very lightest colouration rubs to the corner curves.
The plait feature top handle is firm, stitching and inking (edge sealent) in place throughout.
The detachable shoulder strap shows no use, however there is some spots of discolouration to the inking on one side, as shown*
Hairline scratches to the postmans lock plate and metal clad, front, strap tip ends, the underside plates display contact friction rubs and scratches.
Ruffled, suede lined top flap and clean black Mulberry tree fabric lined interior with a side zipped pocket.
