Hello,

Please authenticate this Dooney & Bourke. It was purchased at my local goodwill. The measurements are:
H=10" W=13.5" D = 6". The made-in tag did not photograph well. It was made in China. Is this the Vanessa bag? Purple Dooney Front.jpg purple dooney back.jpg Purple Dooney Side.jpg Purple Dooney Bottom.jpg Purple Dooney Inside.jpg Purple Dooney Tags.jpg Thank you.

I don't see any red flags although I've never seen a blank rectangular patch without the embossed name! Does it appear to have been rubbed off, possibly?

As for the red, white and blue tag with serial number, it may have been removed (any remnants?).

I see nothing that indicates that the bag isn't authentic but the two details you mention are really strange!

Looking around the bag with a flashlight and I don't see evidence of either. I thought it was pretty strange too! I may have to ask that friend where they got it from!
