Thread: Vintage tag-nrs??
December 12th, 2013, 10:54 AM #1
I just joined this Forum because off my love for (Mulberry)Handbags. I am a new Fam of the Brand and have bought a vintage mulberry bag. Bayswater-style.
the vendor told me that it is 10 years old and def an original. I have googled the tag number (373140) and it comes up as a fake. My question is, can it be possible that old tagnumbers get "re used" for new "fakes" or did I get a fake :§
The bag was featured on a vintage-designer website who says they do a thorough check to make sure they only have originals on their site.
I like the bag, but I am curios to know about it. After all, the must be an original bag for the tagnumbers mentioned as often used for fakes or is that wishfull thinking ;-)
Thanks for answering!

Re: Vintage tag-nrs??
it is very likely that a lot of the "fake" numbers once appeared on a genuine bag but as this is a number very commonly used on Fakes you might want to look into it further, you don't say which re-seller site you bought from, but, if it was Vestiaire I have def' seen (and reported) fakes on their site - if you want to be sure (one way or the other) you'd best get your bag checked by one of the authentication companies (Authenticate4U or Fakespotters are 2 of them, there is a small fee), or, you could post the details on the Mulberry authentication thread of the Purse Forum (no fee but you may need to go down the fee route to get your money back) x
