Announcement: Tuesday Watch & Jewelry Auctions and Luxury Accessory Auctions move to Heritage Live!

Our Weekly Watch & Jewelry Auctions and Luxury Accessory Auctions are closing with live, online auctions on HA.com's Heritage Live! platform beginning with the auctions that end Tuesday, September 23rd. Each lot is offered one at a time, in lot number order, in live auctions beginning at 9:00 PM CT for Watch and Jewelry and 10:00 PM CT for Luxury Accessories. During this part of the auction, live bidders will be on Heritage Live! competing with each other and with previously placed Internet bids. The lot opens, requests live bids, and then closes when the bidding is finished. There is no change in how you place your secret maximum bids during the week the auctions are open on HA.com. In addition, once bidding on HA.com ends, 2 hours before the live sessions start, you still have the option to leave proxy bids through Heritage Live!

Pristine Condition

In possibly the most desired and rare color for a skin bag, this Birkin is truly a thing of beauty.

Even more rare is the addition of gold hardware, making this bag an extremely rare treasure. This special bag is crafted of the most highly coveting material- Porosus crocodile. The interior is violet chevre leather with one zip pocket and one slip pocket.
This bag is in pristine condition. The exterior is crafted of the highest quality and most symmetrical Porosus crocodile skin. The color is luminescent and brilliant. There is a slight nick in the keyhole underneath the strap. The interior is pristine. This bag includes lock, key, clochette, felt cover, dustbag, and box.
