 Jo's Note: “This is one of those few very very nice Black Vintage Essex bags to be had in the largest size. Wow is it big and a real classy Essex in such nice condition. It is not mint or like new, however I would describe it as close to excellent condition with minimal signs of use. If you've been waiting for one of these big Essex bags and in black too---wait no longer, you won't be disappointed with this Vintage Shoulder Bag! Make a stylish addition to your personal wardrobe today!"

Required Reading Before Purchasing a

Vintage Dooney & Bourke from our Vintage Store:

  • All Dooney Handbags and Accessories are Pre-Owned unless they are listed as New

  • At our Vintage Dooney Bag store, we provide many pictures of handbags with many views.  Photographing handbags is a bit tricky so some will show a bag in a slightly darker or lighter shade. When this is the case, I try to note which picture is the closest color to the actual bag. I’m happy to say the majority of my Dooney Bag pictures very accurately depict the actual colors.

  • All Dooney Pre-Owned Vintage items sold have at least some if not all of the following signs of use except those located in our New & Like New-Excellent Category (these will specifically list signs of use in detail):

  • Brass Duck FOB’s and Brass Closure parts will show some signs of use

  • Leather trim & piping will contain any/all of the following: darkening of leather, slight light or dark color discolorations, small spot(s) of discoloration on strap/body/inside leather.

NO inferior leather products are used in the Restoration of our Vintage Dooney Bags!

Note regarding British tan color of trim: the camera gave me problems with capturing the true shade of tan. Remember it is in reality the true darker Dooney British Tan shade not the copper-tan shade you see in the pictures here.
