Crafted from a wonderfully thick, yet pliable chocolate NVT leather, (see photo of it completely empty with a slight backwards lean,) its one of those bags that has just got better and better with use, like the Darwin of old.
Lots of natural striations and the usual light, surface fingernail scuffs but no marks, scratches or any real wear to the leather.
Corners have that lovely squished curvature that the older Bays sported so fabulously and display the slightest colouration rubs.
Shoulder straps are well shaped but softened and slightly darkened around the top area where they have been hand held.
Inking, (egde sealent) cracking, wear and loss to the handle bases and around the two, flap inlets, as shown.
Cracking to the inking on the inner edges of the shoulder strap, a small section of wear and some tiny feather cracks to a 3cm area on the RH side central cinch on the top aperture (where it gathers)
The Postmans Lock Plate displays some extremely light dotting to the finish and friction related rubbing around the turnlock hole.
There is scratching and finish loss to the underside plate from contact with the base plate and the base feet display scratches and finish loss to their apex.
The interior lined in clean, ruffled suede with a zipped pocket and two slip sections. There is small, white rectangular sticker residue mark at the base of the zipped pocket (where Mulberry placed them on the hide prior to construction.)
Excellent workmanship, fabulous leather and ultimately beautiful.....with many, many more years of service left to give.
