I've only recently started getting into Hermes but true to form (I started my handbag journey with vintage Coach, learning to rehab and restore), I'm super interested in the vintage pieces and leathers of such a heritage brand. I haven't seen any recent threads on the general topic, so I was hoping those of you with vintage pieces would be willing to share :flowers:

What items do you have, and from what time period? How have you found the leather to wear and age? Pictures? Yes please!

She is vintage but absolutely perfect: my 1980 Ardennes Marron Fonce (I thought it was Ebene for a while, then Havane, but Paris just definitively declared this Marron Fonce). She's just been freshly spa-ed and had her hardware replaced to butterfly clasps, so that I can wear her shoulder style! As you can see, she's held up great for all her years, and spa has made her nearly new again!

Oh gorgeous! And so nice that you can wear her shoulder-style now. What's the sizing?
