vintage 1997 HERMES Haut à Courroies 32 cm deep navy blue leather Birkin bag

$9,700

About the Item

Very rare and beautiful Haut à Courroies 32 cm box leather Birkin bag from Hermès dating to 1997 . Color is a deep navy blue and the hardware is gold. The dimensions of the bag are approximately 12.75" (32cm) wide , 10.5" (27cm) high without handle and 6" (15cm) deep with a handle drop of 3" (8cm). The Haut a Courroies, or “high belts” bag, has a similar appearance to the Birkin however it is proportionally taller with slightly shorter handles. The HAC was originally intended for carrying equestrian equipment but has since become an icon of fashion. Box leather has a delicate fine-grained surface with a natural sheen. This smooth leather is soft to touch and has a firm texture that helps to maintain its shape. The bag has a blind stamp of a A within a square is located on the reverse side of the right belt which correlates to the year 1997. Included is the original padlock, keys, clochette and dustbag. Made in France. This bag has been well loved. As expected with a vintage bag, it shows natural, scratches, marring, rubbing, creasing, relaxing to the shape and fading to Hermes stamp. Despite the signs of wear, the box leather has developed a gorgeous patina and will only become more beautiful with age. The interior is clean and is in good condition with normal signs of wear. There is no damage to the bag however it does show wear. This bag is perfect for the vintage Hermes lover. Please examine all photos carefully and contact me if you have any questions. More photos are available upon request.
