Maxi Week at Horsekeeping’s Dooney & Bourke Store

This week we rounded up all the big boys or girls as it were – everything from totes to briefcases to shoppers – the big daddies that hold tons of stuff. So here they are:

Silver Hardware on an AWL Dooney Bag??

Hi Paula,

You have a black Dooney bag with silver hardware. I thought all Dooney hardware is brass. Please advise. Jessica

Hi Jessica,

Good eye !

Dooney & Bourke occasionally releases commemorative items such as the bag above. In my Spring Summer 1999 catalog there are a number of bags with nickel hardware or nickel plated brass hardware.

And in the Summer 2001 catalog on page 16 there is a photo of this bag, which at the time I did not know the name of.

 It is a Small East West Flap Bag, number 191

Medium Black Essex Dooney & Bourke All Weather Leather Handbag

The Essex handbag is a classic.

The Medium Essex has the number 25 and when the bag has self colored piping instead of British Tan, there is a designation of P in front of the number.

So this black beauty is a Medium Essex P25.
