The Pioneer Haut A Courrois aka HAC!

Which came first the Haut A Courrois, the Birkin, or the Kelly?... If you answered the Haut A Courrois you deserve a big gold Hermes star. This travel bag was originally intended to hold your saddle and was the inspiration for the legendary Birkin and Kelly.

This one in particular is a classic Hermes Rouge with Toile, and is stamped C for 1973. There is some wear on the handle and edges, and a few stains on the canvas. A big collector's item, this travel bag is big enough to carry anything for that weekend getaway and the perfect carry on. Part of a travel set, this historic bag is fairly priced and will not be here for long, so act now!

Hermes 50 cm. rouge and toile haut-au-courrois. C stamp for 1973. Measures 50c cm x 52 cm x 46 cm.SOLD
