Hi jburgh,

I was wondering if I could get your opinion or maybe the others who might be familiar with this tote. I recently sold this bag and the seller is questioning the bag as she has a similar bag in brown leather. The leather styles I recall came in smooth and pebbled leather. This combination of fabric and the shine leather I was told by Tods was produced in limited production hence the colored lining. Since this is an earlier model it is hard to compare with the newer styles since linings have changed. Any additional comments would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

mibolsa - I am not the person to ask. I just transferred your pic into the reference library and have not seen this in real life. The other Girelli bags (E-W) I've seen pictures of have a criss-crossed top closure at each end.

I believe LT Baglady, swan1, j9hirsch and ms piggy are the specialists here.

I will edit your thread title to remove my name so more people will respond.

I'm not very familiar with this model. But from what I can see, it looks like an authentic Tod's.

jburgh, ms piggy

Thank you for your input, When I picked this bag up at Tods in Italy they told me it was in limited production and there wasn't a big distribution to the states. I also picket up a wallet with this interior. I had the Girelli in the brown leather and the interior and leather is different so I can understand the buyer's question.

Thanks again for your help

I have owned a few Girellis, and based on the photos, I think this bag is authentic.
