    Hermes 30cm Shiny Black Porosus Crocodile Birkin Bag with Palladium Hardware
    T, 2015
    Pristine Condition
    12" Width x 8" Height x 6" Depth
    This bag is the epitome of the ideal Birkin. It is done in what is currently the most popular size, 30cm, which is the optimal size for day or evening use. It can hold everything you'll need during the day, but won't look too large if used in the evening either. The exterior is done in Shiny Black Porosus Crocodile, the finest exotic skin used by Hermes. The scales on this particular piece are some of the finest scales possible. They fulfill every aspect of The Three S's (Small, Square, Symmetrical) to the Nth degree. It is a wonder to see your face perfectly reflected in a million tiny scales as you admire this pinnacle of luxury and craftsmanship. Those glossy cubes are paired beautifully with Palladium Hardware, adding to the cool, sophistication of this otherworldly handbag. The interior is done in matching Black Chevre Leather and features one slip pocket and one zip pocket. The exterior of this bag features two rolled top handles and the classic turnlock closure.

    This bag is in Pristine Condition. It shows no signs of use or wear. The original protective plastic is intact on the four feet, and the two plaques, as well as the spindle base. This bag comes with a lock, two keys, and a clochette, as well as a box, dustbag, tissue paper, clochette dustbag, raincoat, felt, original price tag, a care booklet with a separate dustbag and the CITES certificate.
