This is the original Dooney & Bourke Cabriolet Crossbody Messenger Satchel. The Cabriolet Collection are very unique as they are made with a thick, durable canvas fabric. The same fabric used in automobile convertible tops. They were trimmed with British Tan Vachetta leather for a stunning contrast.
This gorgeous Cabriolet is a rare model from a private collection and it is also in excellent condition. Seldom do you ever find one of these completely intact but this is one of the few.
In the colors of Black and British Tan, the leather has attained the beautiful patina that gives this Dooney so much character. The flap is secured by a strip of leather across the front. Lift the flap to see the flawless, Black cross-checked fabric lining. Not one mark or stain and it is odor-free. There is a slip pocket just under the flap, another inside, and finally a slip pocket in the back. All are leather trimmed and pristine.
The Red, White, and Blue authentication tag is intact and has the serial numbers on the back. It is a genuine U.S. made original.
The wide, thick web strap is comfortable and fully adjustable to afford carrying this Dooney across your body. It is spacious enough to carry a ten-inch tablet and your essentials with ease. Perfect for travel, outdoors, and business yet it is very stylish and can be worn anytime. It is truly a versatile Dooney.
The canvas is clean, full of color, and water resistant. The Vachetta Leather is clean with just one faint smudge that is insignificant and of no issue. This is a Dooney that is highly collectible as so few of these exist today and even fewer like this one.
These are quite unique as the Cabriolets are completely different from leather and Signature Dooney’s. Even the solid brass metalwork; on the Cabriolet, the brass is conical and smooth with no stampings. But, make no mistake as right up front, is the Dooney & Bourke leather nameplate.
If you are a collector of vintage Dooney & Bourke handbags, this is one not to miss.
The dimensions are: 9 ½ “L x 8 ¼ “H x 3”D and the strap is fully adjustable to over 40 inches.
