    Very Good to Excellent Condition
    19" Width x 14" Height x 4" Depth
    This suitcase is an incredibly special piece. Not only is it made of carbon fiber, a material used very rarely by Hermes, but it is also one of only five hundred that were made, making this a great collector's item. Whether looking for a functional, beautiful suitcase, or wanting to build a diverse Hermes collection, this piece is a valuable item that you don't see often. The exterior is done in shiny Carbon Fiber, and it features a Vache Naturelle Leather handle and clochette with Gold Hardware, locking closure, and keys. The interior is also Vache Naturelle and includes one slip pocket, and is stamped number 215/500.

    This suitcase is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. There is a slight patina to the handle, and slight tarnishing and surface scratching to the hardware. There is glue residue, light scuffs, and a few small scratches.
