    Hermes 32cm Rouge H Calf Box Leather Retourne Kelly Bag with Gold Hardware
    Fair Condition
    12.5" Width x 9" Height x 4" Depth
    The Hermes Kelly is perhaps the most timeless bag on the market. This vintage Kelly bag was created in 1965 and the Rouge H Calf Box leather has aged beautifully. The bag features Gold Hardware and a single top handle. The interior is done in Rouge H Chevre Leather and has three slip pockets.

    This bag is in Fair Condition. The leather on the top handle, exterior flap, and gussets is cracked, faded and flaking. All four corners are deeply worn. The gold tone hardware is worn, scratched, and patinated. The touret is loose but still functional. The exterior and interior leather is scratched and darkened throughout. Despite this bag's wear, it has proved extraordinarily durable. The Calf Box leather has a lovely shine, smooth texture, and patina. This bag is missing its lock, keys, and clochette.
