This is the odd shaped purse I found today at the flea mall. Inside is a made in china tag. I was wondering if this was authentic, as I may go and purchase it.
Also here are pics of the bag I already have. Also the front of the wallet that came with the purse. Inside was a checkbook flap and everything. I’m more concerned with the authenticity of the purse though.!
All three items are counterfeit, knocks off bags, not authentic Dooney & Bourke bags. The counterfeiters have used the color combinations that are typical of Dooney & Bourke but that is where all similarities end.
Dooney & Bourke has never made any items that look like these three. Some of the dead givewaways:
the black vinyl interior of the hexagonal bag
the braided trim on the wallet
the vinyl buckle and strap on the front of the faux Surrey Carrier.
Here is what real Surrey Carriers look like – click on the photos to go to the page to get more detailed photos, dimensions and details.
Thanks for the question. You can always buy authentic Dooney & Bourke bags on our website.
