Our Pursonal Thoughts

This authentic Hermès 40 cm Vache Ligee Birkin is in mint previously owned condition.  There is very faint color loss on one corner that can only be seen under the closest scrutiny.  A small “smiley” may be seen at the closure from the pressure of the lock.  However, it is quite difficult to notice and impossible to see when the lock is in place.    The handles are pristine as they have been covered with twillies at all times.   Hermès bags are considered the ultimate luxury item the world over.  Hand stitched by skilled craftsmen, wait lists of a year or more are commonplace.  This particularly rare Birkin is in Black Vache Ligee leather; a very desirable leather that is no longer produced by Hermès.

 Vache Ligee is a naturally grained leather made form adult cow hide.  It is scratch resistant and very rigid, making it maintain the shape of the bag well over time; crucial for the 40 cm size Birkin to prevent over slouching.  Considered very desirable, it is also a more expensive leather than most of the other leathers currently offered by Hermès.

  The black leather on this Birkin is sleek and classic.  Highlighted with sophisticated palladium hardware.    Double rolled handles are carried in hand or at the elbow.  Coordinating chevre (goat skin) lining with one side zippered pocket.  Blind stamped L within a square.  Made in France. 

Purchase includes padlock, keys, clochette,  raincoat, dust bags and Hermès box.
