Tag has been torn out.

Tags removed or snipped? Often we will see tags that are snipped or partially or completely torn out of the bags. If a tag is snipped but is mostly still there, it probably indicates that the bag was sold at an outlet store - it is likely authentic but might have been an overstock or slightly imperfect bag. If a tag is completely ripped out, leaving only a few red and white threads, I am always suspicious. Such bags might be authentic but it would be difficult to authenticate them without a registration number.

Paula's Vintage Dooney & Bourke BlogPaula Says: "Unless otherwise noted, all of our Dooney bags have a red, white and blue sewn-in cloth tag like the one at the left that says 'Dooney & Bourke, Inc. Made in U.S.A.' on one side and has the bag's registration number on the back.

"These Dooney Classic briefcases are rare, expecially in such nice condition as this one - the inside is exceptonally clean. The Classic is slightly larger than the Dooney Legal Briefcase - very roomy and built to last."

By law, we are required to say that we are not employees of Dooney & Bourke and, to the best of our knowledge, each bag we have listed on our site is a 100% authentic Dooney & Bourke Handbag. If we can not verify the authenticity of a bag, we will mention it in the details.

Bag Condition Score Guidelines
10 Like New Just like new. Shows virtually no signs of use. All bags are pre-owned but the bags in this category do not appear to have been used.
9.5Almost New May have faint signs of use (will be noted specifically in description) but is almost new. There might be a scratch or light wear on the brass or a tiny scuff or stain on the leather. Read the details and look at the photos.
9Excellent No major problems. Everything is structurally in very fine shape and the bag has been very well cared for. Any slight problems will be noted in detail. There might be a scuff on the leather duck, or a very small stain inside. Read the details and look at the photos.
8Very Good Normal wear but very good care. May have a minor issue such as one small ink mark or slight darkening of leather in a spot. All problems will be noted in detail. Read the details and look at the photos.
7Good A bag that was used, well cared for and not abused. Will likely show some noticeable wear such as scuff marks on the bottom piping, some darkening of leather where handled such as the strap and fasteners. Read the details and look at the photos.
6Fair Might need a cleaning, minor repair - details will note this. These bags are usually located in our Grab Bag section. Some might be in excellent shape except for one stain or blemish. Read the details and look at the photos.
