  1. Thank you, boxermom! Now I can relax and focus on acting surprised if the bag appears in a few weeks! Thanks again for contributing your expertise -- you and the other kind authenticators must assuage much anxiety every day with your work here. :ty:
     
  2. Thank you! You are the best!
     
  3. This picture has been added. Thanks!
     
  4. Sometimes her photos come out dark. If I recall Shadow had some (but much much less) of the same taupe undertones as steel. Am I remembering this correctly?

  6. This is authentic, and the color code is indeed Baltic. You can stop being nervous now! Beautiful bag!
     
  7. Thanks!! Can sleep easily now.. is a strange and mesmerising color.. a mixture of light and dark grey
     
  8. Yes - Bottega Veneta does those sorts of colors so well - always changing, so you're never bored with it. Congrats!
     
  9. Hi, I recently purchased a BV Intrecciato VN wallet online as a gift... Any help to authenticate this would be much appreciated!

    The backside of the tag inside the slot compartment (right hand slot) says Originality Certified, followed by a one-line code that starts with B and ends with A if I'm not mistaken... it's really hard to flip it over as I'm afraid of messing up the structure..:sweatdrop:

  10. We need to see the back side of the tag - the wallet will take much more than you flipping up the tag to photograph it - :smile: Please see the first post in this thread for the layout of what we need to authenticate. Thanks!
