Dooney & Bourke R57
Vintage Large Horseshoe Bag
HK Item #371

Paula Says:

""The Large Horseshoe bag is my personal favorite and it must be the fave of most of the original owners too because we rarely are able to get these and when we do, they gallop off ! This bag is in a rare, collectible Air Force Blue and is in remarkable condition inside and out. It even has both leather keepers on the carrying strap, as seen in the photo at the right.

"The only visible flaws are slight water marks on the duck seal and the back leather tab shown in photo below. There is a very faint smell of smoke inside, which a touch of Febreze or spritz of your favorite scent would likely take care of - but we'll leave the choice of the scent up to you. If not for these two issues this bag would definitely be a 9."
