Intersting. Carol Saroyan Matthau was the inspiration for the character Holly Golightly.
I just looked at the listing and I think the Hermes stamp is missing the s? Or maybe i need a magnifying glass?
It's cute- looks a lot like a Vuitton Noe. Uh oh, Irene are you seein' this?
It's a market bag and the bin is higher than the retail price of the bag if it were new in the store. I saw one last year for $2400 if memory serves. Although, this one comes with its own celebrity history behind it.
Is this style difficult to find? I do like this style quite a bit....
^^Yes. I only saw it once last year. Although a really knowledgeable SA once told me it is actually a discontinued model. However, H is known to send out discontinued models to the stores on occasion. Now I don't know if they were SOs that were not picked up or whether a craftsman got bored one day and decided to try something different, but bottom line is it's rare.
Ooh can´t wait for my market bag!
Interesting auction. Thanks and thanks HG for the info.
Thanks for posting this auction, very interesting.
And off topic great pic of you and Mr le Bon!! Personally I was always going to marry John Taylor. Oh I feel 15 again!
duranie, thanks for the link. Gorgeous bag.
This has been on eBay before with a MUCH lower BIN. Looks like it's back to capitalize on it's famous owners
^^^Hmmm, that's interesting.
That is an absurd price for that bag IMO.
Seriously. A different one just sold for like $400 the other day. I got outbid on it by like a buck and was furious.
And not for nothing but there are like 47 mistakes in that listing. I don't trust sloppy sellers.
Its a great bag for sure but is the story true?
