I missed the bid on eBay for this Doctor bag – I am so dissapointed

Hi Paula,

I was away from my computer when this auction closed so I missed the bid on this bag by $1 – I am so disappointed.

I’ve been looking for one of these doctor bags for a long time. Are they hard to find?


Hi Sue,

Thank you for sending the photos of the counterfeit Dooney & Bourke Doctor bag.

Lucky you. But sad for the many people who bid on the bag thinking it was authentic and most especially the person who won the auction and received the bag. The photos you sent are of a blatant FAKE bag – see my notes with the photos. Then see comments at the end.


FAKE Note the handles are riveted on permanently. Also note the fabric showing on the supposed all leather handles.


FAKE The base which is supposed to be British Tam leather is too wide and made of vinyl.


FAKE – Again vinyl here and the supposed brass feet on the bottom are round buttons instead of the authentic Dooney brass feet.


FAKE – This black vinyl interior is never seen in an authentic Dooney bag.


FAKE – Vinyl trim and latch not of the design used on Dooneys


FAKE – Duck is obviously glued on and not sewn on. Duck patch is a counterfeit.


FAKE – This shows black vinyl interior pockets rather than the British Tan pockets in an authentic bag.


FAKE – Overall view of fake bag with counterfeit features.
