I want to sell these on eBay – are they authentic Dooney & Bourke?

Hi paula, I recently purchased 3 dooney and bourke bags. I have questions about their authenticity. I would like to sell them on ebay but have no desire to fool anyone so just want to be sure first. I would love for you to take a look if possible.  Thank you have a great day!!! Heidi

Here are photos of Bag A

First of all kudos to you for checking before listing your bags on eBay !! That is a very respectable and responsible thing to do. Since there are many counterfeiters out there, it is easy to be fooled.

Sadly, all 3 of your bags are fakes.

Each one shows many features of counterfeit bags.

The black interior pockets.

The vinyl trim and straps

The non-brass feet on the bottom.

But bottom line, Dooney & Bourke has never made any bags that even look like these bags – the features are not consistent with any bag.

I’m not exactly sure which bag the counterfeiters were trying to copy when they made bag A, perhaps a Kilty?

Here is what an authentic Kilty would look like. Click on the photo for detailed features.
