Hermès Birkin 35 Vert Anis Togo with Palladium Hardware - 2006, J Square
A Classic Birkin that encapsulates an era. Nothing says mid-2000’s like a 35cm Birkin, the Queen of all ‘It Bags,’ and nothing more typifies Hermès in this era than their use of now iconic colors like Vert Anis. This example, in Togo leather, a favorite of many Hermès lovers for its durability, soft touch, and suppleness, features Palladium hardware and has been kept in exceptional condition, a time capsule to another era.
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 colored finish (e.g. gold, silver, palladium). The terms refer to the tone or color of the hardware and not the actual material used. If hardware is composed of precious solid metals this will be referenced in the description.
