    Hermes 35cm Blue Thalassa Calf Box & Vibrato Leather Birkin Bag with Brushed Gold Hardware
    Very Good to Excellent Condition
    14" Width x 10" Height x 7" Depth
    This is a very special offering from Hermes. Vibrato Hermes bags are incredibly rare and hard to come by since the company has discontinued the process. The painstaking Vibrato technique involves applying high pressure to many layers of leather, making these bags great collector's items. This technique results in the appearance of layered colors which give Vibrato bags a fun twist on classic Hermes shapes. This Birkin is done in Vibrato and accented with Blue Thalassa Calf Box Leather and Brushed Gold Hardware. This bag features two leather handles, lock, keys, and clochette. The interior of the bag is done in Blue Thalassa Chevre Leather with one slip pocket and one zip pocket.

    This bag is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. There are general signs of wear to the bag's leather, along with light scratching and creasing. The leather at the bag's clochette is separating at the loop opening. The base corners show signs of professional retouching. There is light scratching to the bag's interior. This bag comes with lock, keys, clochette, dustbag, and box.
