    Hermes 35cm Blue Thalassa Calf Box Leather Birkin Bag with Brushed Palladium Hardware
    G Square, 2003
    Good Condition
    14" Width x 10" Height x 7" Depth

    In reference to the eponymous sea goddess, Blue Thalassa evokes the subdued blue and green colorations of the deep sea with a spectacular polished look. When combined with this elegant and classic leather, there is no going wrong. This bag is done in Blue Thalassa Calf Box Leather, and features two rolled handles, exquisite Brushed Palladium Hardware, and a flap top with a turnlock closure. The interior is done in matching Blue Thalassa Chevre Leather, featuring one zip pocket and one slip pocket. This bag includes two keys, a lock, and a clochette.

    This bag is in Good Condition. There is scratching to the hardware. There is scratching, scuffing, and creasing throughout the exterior leather. The leather structure is warped along the front top edge, and there is a crease in the structure along the reverse right vertical edge, causing a slight right lean. There is some scuffing and cracking to the resined edges in places, and the tiret loop is cracked and separating. There is some scuffing to the handles and to the base and base corners. The interior leather exhibits noticeable scratching, scuffing and denting to the base leather, creasing to the interior gussets, one white scuff just above the interior slip pocket, and a vague vintage odor. This bag includes an Hermes dustbag.
