DescriptionHermès 35cm Natural Buffalo Leather Birkin Bag with Palladium Hardware
G Square, 2003
14" Width x 10" Height x 7" Depth
This bag is done in Natural Buffalo Leather with Palladium Hardware, featuring rolled top handles and a flap top with a turnlock closure. The interior is done in matching Natural Buffalo Leather, featuring one zip pocket and one slip pockets. This bag includes two keys, a lock, and a clochette, as well as two brown braided leather charms featuring horse hair and a vintage sterling silver and turquoise Zuni Rainbow Man.
There is mild scratching to the hardware and heavy scratching and tarnishing to the base feet, together with some rubbing to the base corners and a tiny scuff to the front left base corner. The front face has a very minor, negligible stray ink spot and mark towards the base and back face shows some minor drying to the resin along the top edge. There is some creasing to the sides and along the base due to storage and the heavy natural of the leather. This bag includes an Hermès dustbag.
Estimate: $6,000 - $8,000.
