On the way to me – Part 1: Rare Mulberry ‘double binder’

This binder was rather a shock to me as I didn’t even know they existed. It is a vintage Mulberry double binder and looks to be in pretty good condition. It was on eBay Germany. I was tagged on it by Ena of Filo-Manie (who knows I love oddities) and fell in love with it immediately. Unfortunately I was unable to bid because I do not live in Germany. BUT Ena contacted me and so kindly offered to buy it for me. Which she did. At a very good price. And it is now on its way to me. I cannot believe my luck!

The kindness and generosity of people like this always makes me feel so humble and restores my faith in human nature. Ena knows I collect rarities so she thought of me. That people know and care so much just floors me sometimes. Thank you Ena – you will never know how much this means to me!

Here is a link to Filo-Manie's lovely article on it. Isn't it gorgeous? If your default web browser does not automatically translate, Google Chrome is a good option. This article is a must-read as it has great photographs.

Below are the photographs from the auction. I will do a reveal as soon as it gets here! Thank you Filo-Manie and Ena!

  1. Lovely! And it doesn’t look like it was ever used. The only thing that would drive me crazy is that I’d probably open up the wrong side as they look the same.
