The All-Weather Leather Duck Seal is excellent !

We've seen seals like this that are flat and perfect on bags that we KNOW are authentic. This one says
"Dooney & Bourke All-Weather Leather TM"

Now, the seals on most authentic bags say
"Dooney & Bourke All-Weather Leather R"

When someone applies for a Registered Trademark, while they are waiting for the trademark to be approved by the US Government, they must use the symbol "TM" to show that the trademark application has been made. Then when the trademark is granted, the company substitutes an R for the TM. This is what makes us think this could be a very old, prototype bag. Yet, it is in almost new condition. You decide.

 

Dooney & Bourke Equestrian Handbag, #80

$50.00 SOLD

Dooney and Bourke All-Weather Hand Bag
This burgundy bag is in super condition and it looks and feels like a real Dooney & Bourke bag to us, but unfortunately it is missing the brass FOB and it does not have a sewn in tag.

We've seen a double adjustable shoulder strap attachment like this on other bags that we know are authentic Dooney and Bourke - they are very old bags that have the original large square green cloth Dooney and Bourke sewn-in tag.
This bag has no sewn-in tag.

This bag does have the words "Solid Brass" stamped on the hardware and a Dooney & Bourke seal on the back (see the comments about it by its photo).

We are unable to verify absolutely that this bag is authentic Dooney & Bourke so we are selling it as a grab bag. Please buy it for its great condition and color at the very low price we have it listed at. It might be a very early Dooney bag which would be highly collectible and at a great price or it could possibly be a copy made with very nice leather and in very good condition, so it is still a good price for the bag!

This might very well be a vintage bag that was made before Dooney & Bourke began attaching "Made in the USA" tags with serial numbers.

The lines are not scratches, but natural creases in the grain of the leather.

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.
