Hermès Birkin Himalaya Bag Sets New Record at Christie’s Paris at $171,675

This Hermès Birkin Himalaya bag set a new record.
 
A Birkin Himalaya bag by Hermès in white crocodile, circa 2009, set a new record at Christie’s Paris, selling for $171,675 on March 9.
Hermes offerings dominated Christie’s inaugural handbag and accessory sale in Paris, which raised a total of $2.79 million, double the pre-sale estimate. 
All the top 10 lots were by Hermès, primarily Birkin models, though other models went several times over their pre-sale estimates including a tricolor Kelly Sellier bag, circa 1992, selling for $99,735 and a Kelly picnic, circa 2011, selling for $53,955.
