Hi,

I was wondering if anyone could help me authenticate (or not!) this Cartier trinity bag?

It is not leather on the outside, but I have seen mention of these bags made with "microfibre" outsides. It is cream suede on the inside. It is black with Cartier running over the outside in light lettering. It has Cartier zip pulls and a gold Cartier stamp on the inside. There is no "Made in France" that I can see. It does not have Cartier embossed on the handles, but it does have 1, 2 & 3 stamped on the inside of each handle respectively. The white silk which lines the pockets has "HUNGUN" running through the fabric intermittently. The silver handle seems to have lost its lustre while the others have not. I have seen a bag on eBay with exactly the same features being sold as genuine.

Anything else I should include?

More pictures to follow.

You need
Focused, clear Close-ups of the Maker's stamp, the brass plate, the zipper pulls, other hardware, and any other markings in the leather, such as a number or country of origin. These need to be daylight shots, not flash. Natural light through a window is fine, as is very lightly filtered light ( eg, holding tissue paper between light and the bag o reduce glare).

Got this Cartier bag from my mother-in-law. Not sure where she got it. Didn't know Cartier made purses. Do you think it is real?

This is looking good. Ideally, I would like to see the made in stamp (there is one on the leather somewhere (not just the plate)) and the zipper logo.

Do you authenticate Cartier Love bracelets? If not is there a section on Purse Forum that does?

Hi, you could also try the Jewelry Box forum here: http://forum.purseblog.com/the-jewel...ler-30027.html


Good luck.
