    Hermes 30cm Matte Gris Elephant Nilo Crocodile Birkin Bag with Gold Hardware
    Excellent Condition
    12" Width x 8" Height x 6" Depth
    This striking and wearable Birkin is done in Gris Elephant, a very unique and complex color. Somewhere in the gray, khaki, olive, brown family, this stunner has a casual, downtown feel. In 30cm with gold hardware, this is a bag you will use the day it arrives and every day after. The Matte Niloticus Crocodile skin is done in the lovely shade of Gris Elephant, a shade that makes such an incredibly luxurious material extremely wearable year round. It features two rolled handles and gorgeously paired gold hardware. The interior is Gris Elephant Chevre leather with one zip pocket and one slip pocket.

    This bag is in Excellent Condition. The protective plastic is intact on the plaquees, touret base, and two of the clous. There is very light scuffing to the base corners and along the piping trim in places. There is faint general scratching to the exterior crocodile. There is a scratch to the interior by the slip pocket. This bag includes an Hermes dustbag, a care card, two keys, a lock, and a clochette.
