    Hermes 23cm Black Epsom Leather Double Gusset Constance Bag with Palladium Hardware
    Excellent to Pristine Condition
    9" Width x 6" Height x 2" Depth
    The Constance is quickly becoming a favorite bag model of savvy Hermes collectors. Designed in the 1960s, the Constance is the ultimate day to evening transition bag. The bag's design is elegant and simple though recognizable as an Hermes creation by the large H at the opening. This particular Constance is done in Black, a classic shade expertly paired with Palladium Hardware. This bag is done in Epsom Leather which is known for its durability and scratch resistance. This Constance features a shoulder strap that can be double looped for a shorter drop. The interior of the bag is done in Black Agneau Leather and divided into two compartments with one slip pocket and one zip pocket.

    This bag is in Excellent to Pristine Condition. The protective plastic is intact on the hardware. There is a light scratch on the front exterior. This bag includes a protective felt, and a care card with its dustbag.
