Comparing a fake and an authentic Mulberry bag

The purpose of this post is just to look at the difference between a fake and an authentic Mulberry bag.

Yesterday, I bought a secondhand fake Mulberry Alexa from a seller here in the Philippines with the intention of getting that turn lock hardware in the postman’s lock for my Mulberry Bayswater. Upon inspecting the item, I saw the stark difference between the hardware of an authentic and a fake Mulberry bag. It was my first opportunity to closely handle and inspect a fake Mulberry and I thought this post might be of interest to new Mulberry lovers out there. I am no expert in Mulberry bags but with limited knowledge of what to look for.

The photos below are just guide to differentiate the hardware, without discussing much of what makes them different because the counterfeiters might be reading. =)
