Dooney & Bourke - B26
Small Essex Handbag
HK Item #154

Paula says:

"I love the color of this Dark Choclolate Essex - I keep wanting to take a bite out of it! But then my teeth marks would be the only marks on this bag! I don't think it was ever used, and if it was it was with great care because there are no scratches, rubs or stains anywhere on it, inside or out. This bag is a deal at twice the price."

Dooney and Bourke All-Weather Hand Bag
It is rare to see a leather duck seal and fastener tabs
that are as unmarred as the ones on this Essex bag.

Original paper label affixed to the
back of the interior pocket.

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.
