Behold the ultimate dream bag! The Hermes Birkin stand alone as the most sought after, impossible to find, and collectable bag ever made. This exquisite bag is typically only seen on the arms of the fortunate few. Even celebrities find themselves on the infamous Hermes Birkin wait list with the hope of one day owning this ultra-exclusive bag. The Hermes Birkin was created jointly between Hermes CEO Jean-Louis Dumas and the actress Jane Birkin for whom the bag is named after. Unlike other handbags, a single highly skilled craftsman works on one Birkin at a time with the construction of each Birkin bag consuming a whopping 18 hours. Birkin bags are investment quality luxury items meaning that they either hold or increase their value of time. The Birkin is a true timeless masterpiece that will become the crown jewel of your bag collection!
This 35 cm Birkin from 1997, is constructed of gold Vachette Grainee des Ardennes leather, which is a very hard to find leather. Ardennes leather is very sturdy and holds its shape surprisingly well, complete with thick pressed grains and a slight sheen. This Birkin also features the highly sought after gold plated hardware. The interior is lined in luxurious Chevre leather in matching gold color.
This bag has been gently carried and is in excellent condition considering its age! The bottom corners show signs of wear and some very light soiling. The bottom metal feet have surface scratches. The sides of the bag show very light creasing and there is wear and some fading at the top of the gussets. The draw straps show fading and signs of wear. The handles have started to smooth at the top, with some hairline scratches and marks. Additionally, the glazing along the top edge of the handles have started to split. The hardware has surface scratches throughout. The clochette is worn along the top and the key bell has some staining on it from being redyed. The interior has light surface scratches and wear along the base, as well as some faint stains inside the front pocket, but otherwise the interior is clean and in excellent condition.
