Hermes Birkin HAC 55cm Matte Elephant Grey Crocodile Palladium Hardware Bag
Purchased in 2011 at Hermes Paris. One owner. This exotic bag is incredibly rare in this size 55cm HAC. This is the biggest size Hermes produced. This is the only bag in this size on the market.
HAC: The Haut à Courroies, (which translates as “high belts”) bag, is very similar to the Birkin but proportionally taller with slightly shorter handles. Considered as the predecessor to the Birkin, the Haut à Courroies was originally designed by Hermes in the late 1800’s to carry riding equipment – not something most people would use it for nowadays! It is much sought after by Hermes connoisseurs as well as celebrities and makes an especially stylish travel bag.
Condition: Pre-owned. Some signs of wear in the bottom corners of bag, missing lock. Small stain on back of bag. Does not come with original dust bag or receipt. Overall bag is in very good condition. The inside of the bag is very clean and has no odors. Kept in a smoke free environment.
