I love your website so much. It is really informative and I thank you in advance for all your help.
My friend is trying to list a Dooney that she’s thrifted but she wants to make sure its authentic BEFORE selling it. Could you help her check?
Thank you so so much and have a great weekend!
Thank you – this blog is a labor of love of vintage All Weather Leather Dooneys and I am always glad to help with authenticating bags free of charge. It is my way of contributing to the knowledge base out there in hopes it helps prevent fraudulent sales from occurring.
Kudos to you and your friend for taking the time to verify before you sell !!
Oh yes, this is a very nice authentic Dooney & Bourke All Weather Leather Vintage Carrier R701. You can read more about this bag in a previous post which explains why it specifically has the word “Vintage” in its name.
You can always buy authentic Dooney & Bourke bags on our website.
