Hermès Himalayan Nilo Crocodile Kelly commands six figures at Heritage auction
An Hermès Limited Edition 30cm Matte So Black Nilo Crocodile Birkin Bag with PVD Hardware realized $87,500.


NEW YORK, NY.- Hermès crocodile handbags were must-have items for elite collectors at Heritage Auctions' Holiday Luxury Accessories Auction Dec. 5-6 in New York, claiming seven of the highest nine sale prices in the event.

An Hermès 32cm Matte White Himalayan Nilo Crocodile Retourne Kelly Bag with Palladium Hardware surpassed its pre-auction high estimate before hammering at $125,000. The bag features an interior done in Gris Cendre Chevre Leather, with one zip pocket and two adjacent slip pockets.

"Hermès is the standard by which luxury handbags are measured," Heritage Auctions Luxury Accessories Director Diane D'Amato said. "This Himalayan Kelly bag is truly breathtaking, a once-in-a-lifetime piece that the world's top collectors seek to acquire."

An Hermès 30cm Matte White Himalayan Nilo Crocodile Birkin Bag with Palladium Hardware, with two rolled handles and a flap top with a turnlock closure, crossed the block at $112,500, and was sold along with an Hermès box, dustbag, clochette dustbag, protective felt and its CITES document.

A similar handbag enjoyed similar success when an Hermès 35cm Matte White Himalayan Nilo Crocodile Birkin Bag with Palladium Hardware brought $93,750. It features the same Gris Cendre Chevre Leather interior, with one zip pocket and a single slip pocket.

An Hermès Limited Edition 30cm Matte So Black Nilo Crocodile Birkin Bag with PVD Hardware realized $87,500. Featuring two rolled handles and a flap top with a turnlock closure, it has an interior done in matching Black Chevre Leather, with one zip pocket and one slip pocket.

Multiple bidders drove up the price of an Hermès 35cm Shiny Fuchsia Porosus Crocodile Birkin Bag with Palladium Hardware until it ultimately drew $75,000. Boasting an interior done in matching Fuchsia Chevre Leather, one zip pocket and one slip pocket, the bag was sold with two keys, a lock and a clochette.
