This is one of the fitted cases that would have been a part of a fine vintage HERMES travel case, similar to a couple we've offered over the years. The slimline briefcase-like valise comes fitted with several lift-out boxes and also perfume and lotions jars, decanters, normally in French sterling silver or silver vermeil. So I found it interesting to acquire just the single insert makeup box you see listed here on its own, separate from the case to which it once belonged. A nice travel kit for jewelry or makeup and as always, the finest HERMES name and attention to detail and quality. Guaranteed authentic HERMES, this peice would not have originally been sold separate from the valise I describe, but we sell it here as the remaining piece from one of those cases, in case you just wish to have it.
Very good to excellent condition, the leather is rich and supple and pristine, and the celluloid-lined interior is also all original and in fine condition. It appears to have never been used. We recently sold an entire valise in black leather, and this piece is consistent with one that came from that fitted larger set. We are certain of the model. Ask if you wish to see an example of it in the original form (though this one is sold as a single case, as you see it).
