    Hermes Rouge Vif Calf Box & Blue Saphir Chevre Leather Shogun Shoulder Bag with Palladium Hardware
    X Circle, 1994
    Excellent Condition
    10" Width x 9" Height x 4" Depth
    This is an exceptionally rare bag from Hermes. From extremely limited Shogun collection, the Shogun shoulder bag with its prominent circular handle is a masterwork of craftsmanship. This is the first time an example of this incredible bag has come to auction. The exterior is done in Rouge Vif Calf Box leather with Blue Saphir Chevre leather "gills" on the side, and applied matching Rouge Vif Calf Box leather accents at the front. The design of the bags in the Shogun collection was based on classical Samurai armor. This bag has a Clou de Selle snap closure under the flap top, which is elegantly slid through a strap on the rear, making this bag spectacular front and back. The interior is done in Blue Saphir Chevre leather with one slip pocket. This bag comes with an Hermes dustbag.

    This bag is in Excellent Condition. There is very minor scuffing to the exterior leather, and faint surface scratching to the hardware. There are white smudges beneath the flap. This bag includes an Hermes dustbag.
