DescriptionHermes Extremely Rare 25cm Ombre Lizard Birkin Bag with Palladium Hardware
Excellent to Pristine Condition
9.5" Width x 8" Height x 5" Depth
Lizard bags are extremely rare to find, as Hermes requires rigid standards of the skins used by their craftsmen. This fantastic lizard Birkin may have the most striking effect of any lizard bag in the world. The ombre effect is a symmetrical and stunning pattern that emphasizes the delicacy of the lizard scales. This is truly a bag for the most discerning collector- a once in a lifetime purchase. The interior is parchment chevre leather lining with one slip pocket and one zip pocket.
This bag is in excellent condition. The exterior is pristine, the scales and color are completely flawless. The interior is excellent. The palladium hardware is excellent with only slight markings on the feet. Includes lock, key, clochette, box and dustbag.
