Is this $10 flea market purchase an authentic Dooney & Bourke?

Hi Paula,

First of all I wanted to say that I love your blog! it is very informative and helpful. Well let me tell you my short story. I purchased a Dooney and Bourke handbag at my local flea market for $10 dollars. The women that sold it to me mentioned that it was an authentic bag that she owned but did not need anymore. I’ve been reading the blog articles that you wrote as well as other informative websites to see if my bag is real. The bag looks authentic but it might not be. Could you please help me. 😀

Thank you so much,

Yes it is authentic and it is likely a Classic Satchel R29 or R110. You don’t give dimensions so I can’t say for sure but you can compare yours to these two bags.
