    Hermes Shiny Black Crocodile & Ardennes Leather Lorraine Bag with Gold Hardware
    X Circle, 1994
    Very Good Condition

    13" Width x 7.5" Height x 4.5" Depth
    A great workhorse bag, the Lorraine includes many compartments and pockets without sacrificing any inch of style. Done in Shiny Black Crocodile and Ardennes Leather, this bag is highly versatile to wear with any look. This bag features two rolled handles, one flap top pocket with a turnlock closure, one removable shoulder strap, and a zip closure. Inside the flap top pocket, there are three small flap top pockets with snap closures, done in Vert Cru, Gold, and Rouge Vif Gulliver Leather. There are also two small slip pockets in front of one larger slip pocket, and a pen sleeve above the three snap pockets. The interior main compartment is done in Black Chevre Leather, featuring two slip pockets, one zip pocket, and a Gold clip that is attached to the interior via a leather chord.

    This bag is in Very Good Condition. There is scratching and patina to the hardware, scuffing to the crocodile, and scuffing to the leather in places. The handles are slightly bent, and there is creasing to the shoulder strap. The exterior shows general signs of moderate wear. The interior leather exhibits scuffing, denting, and some smudging, with general signs of wear appropriate with age.
