    Very Good Condition
    12.5" Width x 10.5" Height x 5" Depth
    The perfect collector's piece of vintage Hermes, this Sac Mallette is a great way to add the heritage of Hermes to any collection. Done in astoundingly classic and sleek Shiny Black Crocodile, this bag is a testament to the expertise and skill of the craftsmen that Hermes sources. This bag features a rolled crocodile top handle, Gold Hardware, and a double slide and push lock closure. At the base, there is a second compartment that features double lever clasp and pinch lock closures. The interior of the main compartment is done in Rouge H Chevre Leather, featuring two pockets with snap closures. The interior of the base compartment is done in Rouge H Grosgrain, featuring a matching velveteen pillow. This bag includes three keys and a clochette.

    This bag is in Very Good Condition. There is scratching, brown patina, and darkening to the hardware appropriate with age. There is some light scratching across the crocodile, scuffing to the edges and the base corners from wear, and a few small scuffs to the base crocodile. There is some scuffing and general signs of wear to the clochette. The main compartment's interior shows drying from wear, making the Chevre stiff. There is scratching, scuffing, and denting to the Chevre Leather. There is significant general creasing to the interior leather from ear and age. The base compartment interior shows slight fading from wear. This bag includes an Hermes dustbag, clochette dustbag, three keys, and a clochette.
