Hello ladies,

I was wondering if anyone can help me confirm if this is box calf leather as the seller indicated. I am very new to this and just starting to learn about leathers, colors, etc. I thought box leather has a smoother feel than this but of course, I could definitely be wrong. Appreciate if anyone can help!

This isn't Box; which year is this? Agree with @tannfran that it may be Gulliver or Evergrain.

It’s not box leather for sure; but you might take a look at the reference section on leathers, especially evergrain and evercalf. I apologize for not being able to insert a link, but this new tPF format has me a bit confused.

Possibly Gulliver

Thank you for these informative comments! Will definitely look into those.

Also meant to say hi to our gents here as well!

Hmmmm.....There is no stamp at all on the inside of the sangles? This isn't unheard of but is much more common in very old (or very new, which this isn't) bags. Have you had this bag authenticated?
I have not had it authenticated as I decided not to purchase it for these reasons. It may be a very old bag with no blind stamp but I'm specifically looking for box leather. Glad I asked on here to confirm what it is!

Anyone knows what color and leather this is? Thanks! Birkin 35 from 1998

This really is a guess and I've no idea if it is correct for the age of the bag, but could it be buffalo? Absolutely no clue on the colour though.. probably wrong on the leather, sorry, just love the intrigue of this thread :lol:

Thanks! I was told that the leather is Vachette Fjord, the leather is quite stiff and hard to touch. I couldn’t find Vachtte Fjord online. So I’m quite confused….
I thought Fjord would have more veining, but I am only guessing. If it's quite stiff it could possibly be vache liegee, but honestly I really don't know, hopefully someone who knows more will chime in. Sorry, I'm probably being more hindrance than help! I just noticed the darker spots in the middle of the grain on the top flap and it rang a bell.

Hi. I went to FSH and saw this bag:
B7C9E464-848D-4492-8092-05F7EAF3C1CD.jpeg
The store was packed so I didn’t get to ask any SA about it (also there’s a long line upstairs at the home area. What was that about? lol). So can someone tell me the specs of it? I’m guessing it’s a 28 (?) Kelly Sellier with toile, but I’m not sure about the leather part. Swift? Electric blue?

Also did it appear on the runway? Is this like a seasonal release? Push offer?

Many thanks in advance for the help :heart:

I'm fairly sure this is the Kelly Quadrille, a 28 that was shown last year ( I think). It's a push offer. It comes in a variety of colors for the swift trim ( noir, beton ( or another creme color that I saw at FSH- but it was scrumptious- looked like a French confection), sesame, a red ( not RH, a much brighter one I saw in London), lime, bleu de nord and I'm sure a few more. I know the Quadrille fabric is a bit thicker than regular toile, and has a three way weave and color in the noir and sesame one. Those both have noir, blanc and a gold ( desert?) all woven together. The others seem to have the color of the swift trim, blanc and ecru.
here's the sesame from a reseller, which highlights the 3 way weave. I've only seen with PHW and in sellier.
