Hermès Handbags
Christie's South Kensington held the sale of Jewels at South Kensington Including Fine Hermes Handbags today (Wednesday). A total of 81 handbags were on sale which together realised just under half a million pounds - a staggering £476,000. Although many of the bags are nearly new, the prices for the rarest colours and exotic leathers exceeded prices in the Hermes store. Vintage Hermes bags provided a great opportunity for fashionistas to indulge at great value prices for classic timeless accessories. The top lot was A BLEU ABYSS CROCODILE 'BIRKIN' BAG, HERMES, 2010, which sold above estimate to a Private Russian client on the telephone for £42,050 / $63,874 / ?50,208. The second highest lot was A MIEL CROCODILE 'BIRKIN' BAG, HERMES, 2009 bought by a client living abroad, via Christie's LIVE - the unique online bidding service for £39,650.
