At first glance, this fabulous Lily appears to be in a super condition.
Clean, bright patent, vibrant and nicely balanced colouration, well shaped with perfect corners, (any white 'marks' in the Photo Gallery below are purely reflections of the light) and no marks, scratches or splits to the patent throughout.
Well shaped, the form of the bag is firm, though not structured, (it will hold stand when empty, see photo above) and all stitching is firmly in place throughout.
As is commonly seen on this design there is flex cracking to the inking, (edge sealent) at each side of the flaps lower side, though only visible if you extend the flap right back to view.
Hardy replacement film has been applied to the base plate, there is minor, friction scratches to the underside plate from contact.
The main reason for the Condition Rating is due to the surface marks and crazing to the front Postmans Lock Plate. Finish loss around the turnlock hole, the wear to the PML plate is less visible to the naked eye than the photos make it appear but this has been reflected in the price. New lockplates can be fitted by Mulberry, should the buyer wish, for a cost of approximately £60.
Minor dulling and scratching to the chain shoulder strap, the interwoven patent is very good.
The interior is lined in clean, thick beige suede displaying horizontal flattening across the lower part of the flap, where it folds.
A much, much lovelier bag in the flesh than a listing of its faults make it sound......
