Bought a box of name brand bags at an auction – is this one authentic?

Hi Paula,

I recently bought this bag at an auction for $30.00, it was in a box with 7 other name brand bags. It is a beautiful bag, great for going away on the weekend. It is in perfect condition. I am curious if it is an authentic bag. Mostly because my husband could not believe I paid $30.00 for a box of bags and I would love to tell him it is worth something.

The zipper tag says Dooney Bourke
Zipper might be plastic

It is approx 20 in long 11 inches wide 9 inch high. The tag is red white blue with a cut down the middle and the number is AO 563368.

thanks for your help. tara

You tell your husband you did good. REAL good.

This is an authentic Dooney & Bourke R43 Duffel Bag in all British Tan with padded shoulder strap. It’s official measurements are 12″ tall x 22″ long x 9″ deep.

It sold for $495 in 1994.

Read my article about snipped tags so you know what that means and how it affects value. 

Whoo-hoo !! Enjoy.

Paula
