    Hermes 40cm Rouge Vif Ardennes Leather Birkin Bag with Gold Hardware
    Very Good Condition
    15.5" Width x 11" Height x 8" Depth
    Rouge Vif is one of the brightest reds Hermes creates, and is highly sought after for its vibrant and radiant appearance. This bag is done in this very Rouge Vif coloration, paired with an incredibly rare and currently discontinued leather, Ardennes. The combination of this stunning color with this fantastic leather makes this bag an incredible vintage find. This bag features two rolled leather handles, Gold Hardware, and a flap top with a turnlock closure. The interior is done in Rouge Vif Chevre Leather, featuring one slip pocket and one zip pocket. This bag includes two keys, a lock, and a clochette.

    This bag is in Very Good Condition. There is scratching to the hardware, and noticeable scratching and patina to the clous. There is light scuffing to the base corners, and some light creasing to the exterior edges and the gussets. There is wear to the touret opening. The interior leather base is mildly dented, with some scuffing. This bag includes an Hermes dustbag, two keys, a lock, and a clochette.
