Without very close inspection this fabulous Dior looks to be in an Excellent condition.
Colour consistent, well shaped with defined, nicely puffy, quilts. Stitching all perfect, champagne gold hardware bright and shiny and no immediately visible wear. Corners are very good without rubbing, just the slightly more matte appeareance that lambskin acquires.
Only on extremely close review can you note the inevitable fingernails scratches to the hide throughout the piece. A small curved one to the upper RH rear of the bag, (on the diamond quilt below the eyelet), one to the RH side of the front, just to the upper RH side of the hanging charms and one shaped like an inverted 7 on the LH side of the base. A light, diagonal, hairline scratch that extends across two diamonds of the quilt on the front, lower LH side of the bag. This is invisible unless you angle the bag sharply away from you to view.
The top handles display numerous light, fingernail scratches to their inner sides and a couple to the upper RH side of the front handle, all shown above.
There are similar fingernail scratches to the outer curve of the top flap, the inner flap and interior front wall trim, from access.
All much less visible to the naked eye than the close up photos make them appear.
The detachable strap is excellent with a few light scratches to the hardware of the badges, no damage or chips to enamel and end clips are excellent.
Base conical feet and eyelets are excellent, though the hanging Dior letters charm display light friction scratches and minor dulling. The circular embossed leather patch has a small impression to its front centre and two, diagonal fingernails to its reverse (to the lower RH side of the lettering)
The interior is lined in entirely clean red, silk repeat fabric with side zipped pocket.
A very, very light, pleasant perfumed aroma can just about be detected.
