Our Pursonal Thoughts

A fantastic find, this Hermès Blue Ardennes Leather Birkin bag is in truly excellent condition. There is minimal wear to the corners, some light surface scratches on the hardware and light handle wear.  Rewaxing the handles is recommended but not required.  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 particular Birkin is in no longer produced blue Ardennes leather; considered one of the best leathers ever produced by Hermès.  The perfect shade of blue is close to Blue Sapphire or Bleu de Prusse; a universally flattering medium blue.

   Ardennes leather is no longer in production, though it is considered one of the best wearing leathers ever produced. Ardennes is more rigid than Togo, but has a softer hand than Chevre. It is scratch resistant and water resistant; it also holds and maintains the shape of the bag well over time.  The grain is large and flat; it creates a lovely texture. Overall extremely durable and desirable.  

   The blue leather on this Birkin is neutral and classic with a bit more interest than basic black.    The grain shows very well in this shade, adding dimension. The color comes alive with warm gold hardware accents.    Double rolled handles are carried in hand or at the elbow.  Coordinating chevre (goat skin) lining with one side zippered pocket.  Made in France.  Date stamped A within a square. 

Purchase includes padlock, clochette and dust bag.  This is a NON RETURNABLE item.  FINAL SALE.
