DALLAS, TX.- A rare black lizard Birkin is expected to be among the most coveted lots in Heritage Auctions’ Summer Luxury Accessories Auction June 10 in Chicago.

An Hermès 40cm Shiny Black Niloticus Lizard Birkin Bag with Palladium Hardware (est. $50,000-60,000). With two rolled handles, Palladium hardware and a flap top with a turnlock closure, this bag includes an interior done in Black Chevre Leather, featuring a zip pocket and a slip pocket. The bag includes two keys, a lock and a clochette, and is accompanied by an Hermès box, dustbag, clochette dustbag, rain protector, care card and CITES.

“The 40cm black lizard Birkin is the epitome of meticulous craftsmanship and refinement,” Heritage Auctions Luxury Accessories Director Diane D’Amato said. “It took four years to create this elegant work of art. I am certain that whoever is lucky enough to go home with this bag will be delighted for years to come.”

Vying for top-lot honors will be an Hermès 30cm Matte White Himalayan Nilo Crocodile Birkin Bag with Palladium Hardware (est. $90,000-100,000), which is done in Matte White Himalayan Niloticus Crocodile and includes two rolled handles, Palladium hardware and a flap top with a turnlock closure. The Gris Centre Chevre leather interior features one zip pocket and a slip pocket and includes two keys, a lock and a clochette.

Carrying the same pre-auction estimate of $90,000-100,000, an Hermès 35cm Matte Pink 5P Alligator Birkin Bag with Palladium Hardware. Featuring two rolled handles, Palladium hardware and a flap top with a turnlock closure, the bag includes an interior done in 5P Bubblegum Pink Chevre Leather with a zip pocket and a slip pocket. The bag includes a lock, a pair of keys and a clochette, and comes with an Hermès box, a dustbag, a clochette dustbag, protective felt and a box.

An Hermès 30cm Matte Fauve Barenia Alligator Birkin Bag with Palladium Hardware (est. $30,000-40,000) includes two rolled handles, Palladium hardware and a flap top with a turnlock closure.

Perhaps the most unique lot in the auction is an Hermès Set of 223 Voyage en Ikat Porcelain Tableware Set (est. $25,000-35,000). Inspired by Ikat, an exceptional Asian weaving and dyeing technique, the set features more than 20 colors centered on sapphire, ruby and emerald and enhanced by 24-karat gold, which come to life in designs that were composed “thread by thread.”
