Description:
Hermes 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.


Condition Rankings:
 
Pristine- Perfect condition and presents as brand new. No indication of handling or marks.
Excellent - Nearly mint condition with only very minor evidence of handling.
Very Good - Evidence of handling with no major flaws or wear.
Good - Pleasing eye appeal and fully presentable with moderate evident wear, no missing accents.
Fair - Wearable as purchased, yet with evidence of handling and condition issues which may or may not be repairable.
