Birkin bags record $300,000 for a handbag at auction

Birkin bags record $300,000 for a handbag at auction

A white crocodile skin Birkin bag became the most expensive handbag ever sold at auction, when it was purchased for more than $300,000. An unidentified buyer at Christie's in Hong Kong spent HK$2.32 million, or $300,168, on Monday for the matte white Himalaya Niloticus crocodile diamond Birkin 30. That price was well over Christie's estimate of $194,000 to $259,000, and broke the record for the priciest handbag ever sold at auction. That record was set by Christie's last year, when another Himalaya Birkin was purchased for $223,000.
