About

Very rare brown crocodile bag with gilt geometric hardware from Hermes dating to the 1940's. Bag measures 10.5" wide by 5.5" tall by 2" deep. Fully lined in butter-soft leather. Made in France. Excellent condition. Bag has recently been cleaned and conditioned by Hermes and has not been used since. This crocodile bag cannot be shipped outside of the U.S. because it does not come with a CITES permit (bag is older than 1975 when CITES permits were first issued).
