In Hong Kong, we are seeing more and more luxury handbag auctions popping-up. The latest auctioneer in town, London based auctioneer, Spink will hold its inaugural auction of luxury handbags and accessories. Spink and Son Ltd was founded in London in 1666 and is known for their auctions in collectibles, things like stamps, coins, banknotes, bonds & shares and books and fine wines. In their Hong Kong debut they are venturing into the luxury handbags and accessories in association with Brands Connection, a specialist in second-hand luxury brand handbag market for over 7 years.
The auction will be held at their gallery on 18 April 2018 at Hua Fu Commercial Building, Sheung Wan.
Each piece has been carefully selected by Spink’s specialists who have looked at the skin cut and shine for authenticity. There will be over 120 handbags on auction, from classic everyday pieces to the more exotic collector pieces. Among the brands on auction are Hermès, Chanel and Louis Vuitton with auction prices starting from HK$5,000 to HK$500,000.
