ALAMEDA, Calif. – At a Michaan’s appraisal event in August, luxury arrived in the form of an authentic Hermès 32 cm black crocodile Kelly bag. Brought in by a private Tiburon consignor, the handbag showed all the earmarks of an original, further solidified by the accompaniment of Hermès packaging as well as an official Hermès of Paris refurbishment receipt dated to July 9, 2015. Hermès aficionados know such a receipt is a golden ticket so to speak, as the manufacturer will reject performing a service on any bag that is not an authentic Hermès. The Hermès black crocodile Kelly bag, estimated at $17,000-$20,000, highlights Michaan’s auction Oct. 10. LiveAuctioneers.com will provide absentee and Intenet live bidding.
