About

Jet black box leather Constance from Hermes with gilt hardware dating to 1972. The Constance takes an Hermes craftsman over 60 hours to construct. You will not find another bag that is better made. Bag measures 9” wide, 6.5” tall, and expandable up to 2” deep. It has two inner compartments, with a zippered pocket. Exterior pocket at back. The strap can be worn long off your shoulder, doubled up to be carried like a hand bag or tucked in and used as a clutch. Made in France. Condition is very good and is consistent to a bag of this age. There are some scratches to the hardware and to the leather.
