What does P26 BL stand for and is this an authentic Dooney Essex?

I have a Dooney & Bourke bag and would like to know if it is authentic and what its worth. Its black and looks exactly like the Medium Essex P25. The difference is that mine has a label that says P26 BL. Would you be able to help me out?

First some tips to all readers.

This email came in to me August 6. There are about 30 questions that have come in since then, so if you are writing me about a time sensitive question like, “Should I buy this bag on eBay or etsy?” I am not going to be able to help because there is about a 1-2 month lag time between when you send photos and you letter comes up in the queue. and

You can always buy authentic Dooney & Bourke bags on our website.

Next, at the top of each blog page is a Search box. If you use it, it is very likely you will find the answer to your question. For example, for this reader’s question, there have already been several articles about this bag.

Now to you personally Sylvia. It is authentic.

P stands for a bag that is all one color, in other words, does not have British Tan trim, so in this case all black.

BL stands for Black.

26 stands for the Small Essex – read about the Small Essex here.

Mushroom and British Tan Small Essex Dooney & Bourke All Weather Leather Handbag

The Essex handbag is a classic.

The Small Essex has the number 26 and when the bag has British Tan trim, the designation is R in front of the number.

So this rare Mushroom bag is a Small Essex R26.
