CITES compliance applies to this lot. International Bidders may not have the lot shipped to them.

Due to the nature of exotic wildlife materials, please be aware that inconsistencies may naturally be present.
The Piano bag is a longstanding classic from Hermes, and has existed since the maison first started producing leather and precious goods. Done in Ficelle Crocodile, this Piano bag is a great collectors piece, and perfect for lovers of all things vintage. This bag features one top handle, Gold Hardware, and a flap top with a double push lock closure. The interior is done in Ficelle Agneau Leather, featuring one slip pocket on the front, and two compartments. The back compartment features one flap top pocket with a snap closure, and the front compartment has two small slip pockets.
This bag is in Good to Very Good Condition. There is scratching and creasing throughout the crocodile, scratching, chipping and brown and black patina to the hardware, there is wear to the base corners, and some general wear to the top handle. The interior is significantly scratched and dented, which is typical of Agneau Leather, and there is darkening to the Agneau consistent with age. This bag includes a mirror, and a small removable flap top pouch with a snap closure.
