Christie's To Auction Exceptional White Himalaya Niloticus Crocodile Hermes Birkin 30 Bag With 18k Gold & Diamond Hardware

This 2008 Hermes crocodile Birkin bag is being auctioned in Christie's Handbag & Accessories sale, last year a similar bag, alligator, was auctioned in Christie's Hong Kong and made £295,000, or $380,000. This will be interesting to see if and how much it has appreciated.


The bag is so special as it is dyed to match the colours of the Himalayan mountain range. From smoky grey to pearly white.

The handles are encrusted with 205 diamonds and the bag fastens with 18 karat gold buckles.

It looks like the same bag from last year, crocodile, alligator who knows.

Lot 175 Auction estimate £100,000 - £150,000, $133,900 - $200,850.

Auction 8 June - 12.

Only three bags have ever come up for auction, make that 4 then including last year's, and this one makes 5. Unless as I think this is last years.

Out of interest JaneFinds has a similar bag in stock for $500,000 if you don't manage to win this one at the Christie's sale.

The bag made £162,500 at auction.
