Lizard bags are extremely rare to find, as Hermes requires rigid standards of the skins used by their craftsmen. This fantastic lizard Birkin may have the most striking effect of any lizard bag in the world. The Ombre effect is a symmetrical and stunning pattern that emphasizes the delicacy of the lizard scales. This is truly a bag for the most discerning collector - a once in a lifetime purchase. The interior is parchment chèvre leather lining with one slip pocket and one zip pocket.
Where used in this sale the term "hardware" refers to the metallic parts of the bag, such as the buckle hardware, base studs, lock and keys and/or strap, which are plated with a coloured finish (e.g. gold, silver, palladium). The terms "Gold Hardware", "Silver Hardware", "Palladium Hardware" etc. refer to the tone or colour of the hardware and not the actual material used. If the bag incorporates solid metal hardware this will be referenced in the lot description.
