    Hermes Extremely Rare Shiny Vert Emerald Alligator, Rouge Vif Ostrich, Violet Veau Doblis Suede & Black Calf Box Leather Sac Himalaya Bag with Gold Hardware
    Excellent Condition
    14" Width x 17" Height x 6" Depth

    This wonderful Himalaya bag is an amazing combination of four skins-Rouge Vif Ostrich, Vert Foncé Alligator, Violet Veau Doblis Suede and Black Calf Box Leather. This bag is rarely seen, almost mythical, highly prized, and immediately identifiable as a special piece from Hermès. A late eighties era creation from the Hermès ateliers, and rightly famous for its exotic appearance, complex construction, and mix of materials, it represents the summit of true Hermès style. This example is colorful and vibrant. The famous "Kelly" style gold plated closure adorns the front of the bag. It features two interior compartments, one with a zipper, the other a button closure. Even as a highly collectable piece, this bag is very easy to carry as a tote for daily wear.

    This bag is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. There are a few light scuff marks to the leather, one smudge mark on the rear exterior alligator, and some light overall wear to the suede. The interior shows very light wear. This bag comes with an Hermes dustbag
