This is a Dooney & Bourke Classic Satchel Model R29 in beautiful Fir All-Weather Leather and British Tan. It is genuine vintage, authentic, and is truly outstanding. Seldom do you ever see one of these in such superb condition but this gem is clearly one. This is a true vintage Dooney as it has the genuine Dooney brand nylon Zipper. From a private collection, this Dooney was never carried and is in Mint condition inside and out.
The zipper track on the Satchels extends on both ends and has leather ties that insert into the sides. It is accented with the British Tan piping on the ends and trim. This model is very hard to find anywhere.
This “Speedy” Satchel is a true “valise” handbag with handles but was ordered without the strap. One look at picture #4 and you can see, in my opinion; just how unflattering it would look with the handles flopping while carrying this Dooney with a strap. Valises are made to hand or arm carry.
Inside is fully lined and has one zippered pocket with a snap pocket. On the other side is another pocket with a snap. The snaps are solid brass and all of the rivets on the bottom have the Dooney name stamped. There is not a single mark inside and it still smells like new.
There is the red/white and blue serial number tag and number: A5 388108. It truly looks fabulous. On the front is the pristine Dooney Duck Logo. Outside, the All-Weather-Leather is clean, soft, and supple.
The zipper works perfectly and all of the teeth mesh perfectly. The bottom is shiny and clean. The top zipper area is clean and shiny. The piping has no wear and is clean. The British Tan is even and there is no darkening of the handles from use. This is a clear indicator of the meticulous care this Dooney received. It rests on six brass feet and has no wear.
The Dooney fob is present on the leather tether and it gleams with blinding brilliance.
This is a highly desired Dooney. This vintage model is heavier, richer, and thicker than the newer models. There are no holes, tears, or odors, the stitching is tight, and the brass is clean.
If you have ever wanted one of these rare Dooney Satchels, this is one that is like new, time stood still for it. It is an outstanding Dooney you will never, ever regret owning it.
The dimensions are 11 ½” L x 8” H x 5 ½” D and the handles afford a 5” drop.
