    Hermes White Ostrich, Ficelle Lizard, Violet Veau Doblis Suede & Natural Barenia Leather Sac Himalaya Bag with Gold Hardware
    Very Good to Excellent
    16.5" Width x 14.5" Height x 6" Depth
    This wonderful Himalaya bag is an amazing combination of four materials- White Ostrich, Natural Barenia Leather, Violet Veau Doblis Suede and Ficelle Lizard. This bag is rarely seen, almost mythical, highly prized, and immediately identifiable as a special piece from Hermes. A late eighties era creation from the Hermes 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 several black marks on the rear exterior, and some faint scratching to the Barenia leather. There is darkening to the ostrich, two small brown marks on the ostrich near the turnlock closure, and scratching with wear to all four clous. The hardware shows some signs of scratching and the interior has some light denting.
