Authentic HERMES PARIS vintage bag made of panama (that is what Hermes calls it, I believe it is the same material Panama straw hats are made from) and dark navy veau box.
The bag most certainly has a name - because all Hermes bags have one - unfortunately I do not know the name for this one.
It is a shoulder bag, but when the strap is doubled it can also be used as a handbag. The strap is very much like the strap of a Constance - it goes through the 2 hooks on top of the bag.
The panama is on front, back and top of the bag, everything else is veau box. The bag is lined in the same colored smooth VERY soft lambskin (also like the Constance).
Bag has 2 main compartments, with 4 separate slots/pockets, one narrow pocket for a pen; clean inside with some insignificant pressure marks. It is expandable - from a 1" depth to a 3" depth (see photo 7).
Bag has ring shaped golden hardware closure, on backside of ring is small "Hermes" embossing.
This bag is at least 40 years old, and bears the golden stamp without the 'made in France' - which was introduced only mid 70s.
For it's age the bag is in marvelous condition - no damage at all, all stitching is intact, no cracking in the leather, corners show almost no wear, the panama is clean - only natural irregularities in the panama (see the example in photo 9). Hardware has minor superficial scratching. One tiny, 1 millimeter, notch at the strap.
Sorry no box or dustbag, it comes in an Hermes orange paperbag.

A friendly ebay member just confirmed what I thought the bag's name was, but didn't feel confident to post it - now I do: this bag is the Sac Ring.
And as I am adding, I might as well also add that the panama material is a very durable material, comparable to the H toile.
