This marvellous mini LV Icon is crafted from a beautiful, grey toned, sparkly vernis patent embossed with monogram motif.
"The Alma BB handbag traces its pedigree to the Art Deco original, introduced in 1934. Fashioned from Monogram Vernis embossed patent leather with signature details – engraved LV padlock, hand-stitched Toron handles, chic key bell – this glossy, compact bag brings a touch of glamour to any look. The detachable strap can be worn cross-body for an on-trend allure.." LV.com
Without the closest of reviews this divine LV looks nearly new.
Perfectly shaped, there is no wear to the vernis whatsoever. Colour consistent, corners, curves, trims all absolutely As New. (Any white marks in the Photo Gallery below are reflections of the light on the super glossy, reflective patent).
The only reason this stunning piece hasn't achieved a sole 'Excellent' condition rating is due to the vaguest colour transfer to the rear of the bags' two handle bases. Ever so slightly darkened, the location is highlighted and shown from all angles in the numerous Gallery images. So slight to be barely there, this has been reflected in the price.
Hardware is bright and shiny with light scratches to the zips headers where the padlock has been attached, (similar contact scratches to the reverse of the padlock), scratches to the apex of the base feet and contact darkening to the inner curves of the snap hooks, (easily polished away).
Top handles are perfect with the exception of one very small and insignificant dark, shadowy dot to the upper RH side of the front handle. Shown in close up above, you'd never see this unless expressly pointed out.
Long strap is excellent without and stitching all tight throughout.
The interior is lined in pristine grey textile with side slip pocket. The calfskin vachette of the 'Louis Vuitton Paris' label has acquired slight patina.
