About
Essex Handbags

Dooney & Bourke
R25 - Essex Handbag #118 Large

Paula Says:

"Step right up, especially if you have a shoulder strap from another of your Doonies. The previous owner altered the length of this strap so the bag could be carried under the arm or by hand, so it is short. With a little TLC, this bargain bag will shine!"

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.
