Please post authenticity questions related to Fendi in this thread.

NOTE: The PurseForum requests that only members with an extensive knowledge of the brand and authenticating who have over 500 posts participate as authenticators in this AT thread. The moderators reserve the right to remove authentications that do not meet these requirements.

Please use the below format when requesting authentication for an auction item:

Item Name:
Item Number:
Seller ID:
Link:


If the bag in question is not on an auction site, please use the following:

Item Name (if you know it):
Link (if available, if not, provide source):
Attach photos



Pics needed to authenticate Fendi:


1. Clear pic of entire bag / accessory
2. Clear close up pic of hologram tag (front and back)
3. Clear close up pic of leather serial tag
4. For older vintage items - need a clear pic of serial stamp
5. If bag / accessory is constructed of Fendi Logo Jacquard Fabric - need a large area close up pic of the logo print
6. Clear pic showing a nice large swatch of inside lining (lining does vary by style)
7. Any hardware logos, rivets, underside of zipper head
8. If available pic of authenticity card
9. for Selleria bags, need to see a clear close up pic of the silver Selleria plate

**Close up shots can be tough, best way to capture: camera needs to be set on super macro (little flower icon), tons of light, no flash and a very steady hand, press down very lightly on the shutter to focus and take the pic. You might have to take more than one, sometimes at different angles to get the perfect pic**

Additional notes:
If the bag is from a listing, always Include the listing link using the proper format. If the seller does not have the needed pics in the listing, please request PRIOR to posting your inquiry to avoid delays in getting an answer.




PLEASE NOTE:


  • Do a search in this thread (type seller's name in "Search this thread" located on the top right corner) and check if the item has been reviewed by one of the authenticators BEFORE posting a request.

  • Should one of your items be questioned in this thread, you are welcome to provide additional pictures or materials supporting its authenticity. Please note that while it's fine to defend your own auction if its authenticity is questioned (someone says, "I think it's fake b/c..., etc"), please do not authenticate your own bag.

  • Do not handle your disputes with other members in this thread but take your differences to Private Messages. Failure to do so can result in banning.

  • Utilize the "Quote" feature when responding directly to another post.

  • Post the link to the original query when requesting a second opinion or in a follow-up post.

  • Please note that comments on price and condition are NOT permitted.

  • Do NOT PM an authenticator or Mod to request authentications. Any and all such requests must be posted in this thread.
Authenticators are not required to answer every request, and it is their right to ignore a request that is not in the proper format.

Hello,

I would love to have this bag authenticated if possible. I purchased this at a local high end consignment and want to make sure that it is authentic. Also if you know what the bag is called I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks so much.

Teresa

Hello all! I purchased this bag at a second hand store and would like to know if it is authentic. The bag appears to be of good quality and smells like genuine leather. No hologram but has a leather serial number. It came with two authenticity cards, not sure if either belong to the bag. Also, if someone could give me an idea of the year made, I would appreciate it. Thanks!!

Hello, I posted some pics of a Fendi bag last week and added pics of a wallet but I only see one page on this thread now. Should I still wait for a reply? I heard from someone and they said they had their doubts and told me to wait for someone else's opinion. At this point I'm not exactly sure what to do, I'm waiting for a reply so I can send the bag back if indeed it is fake. Thank you so much for all your help

The wallet looks good but the bag looks poorly made because some of the stitches are loose or crooked and the tag with the serial number looks really cheap. Please help authenticate. I took some pics of my own ince the seller did not provide enough. thanks so much in advance!
