This is an LV Bedford, similar to the papillon but with a cute pocket on the end and crafted in Louis Vuitton durable vernis leather. This bag has been professionally dyed in a sleek black.
It’s been buffed, sealed and polished back to its shiny patent leather look and the natural leather vachetta details are in great shape.
Unlike a lot of bags that are described as ‘patent leather’ Louis Vuitton’s Vernis is actually all genuine leather treated to give it a high shine. Vernis translates to ‘varnished’ in English. Yes – varnished leather. 🙂 This bag includes a sheepskin piece to keep your purchase shiny and smooth. It also helps to remove any of those pesky fingerprints .. especially on black.
– All leather has been reconditioned and all brass/metal components have been polished up.
– Minor scuffs here and there – that’s to be expected with a bag that’s almost 20 years old
– The interior is excellent with no rips, peeling or staining and the zippers are in perfect working order.
– There are no cracks or peeling on the exterior
