    Very Good Condition
    9" Width x 6" Height x 2" Depth
    The Constance is quickly becoming a favorite bag of savvy Hermes collectors. Designed in the 1960s, the Constance is an ideal day to evening transition bag. The bag's design combines simplicity and elegance and features a highly recognizable H at the bag's opening. This particular Constance is done in Black Calf Box Leather and accented with Gold Hardware. This bag features a shoulder strap that can be worn doubled or single, a lift clasp closure, and a rear exterior slip pocket. The interior of this bag is done in Black Agneau Leather with one slip pocket and one zip pocket.

    This bag is in Very Good Condition. There are light sporadic scratches to the exterior leather, and creasing to the leather shoulder strap and in places throughout the exterior. The exterior leather shows signs of expert retouching, and there is light scratching to the hardware. The interior exhibits light scratching, scuffing and denting appropriate with age. This bag includes an Hermes box and dustbag.
