DescriptionHermes 28cm White Gulliver Leather & Canvas Sellier Kelly Bag with Gold Hardware
11" Width x 8" Height x 4" Depth
A great piece of vintage Hermes, this Kelly bag is for collectors and lovers of all things Hermes. This bag is done in White Gulliver Leather and Beige Canvas, featuring one top handle, Gold Hardware, and a flap top with a turnlock closure. Older models of the Kelly bag, such as this one, do not include a shoulder strap, making this bag an incredible find. The interior is done in White Agneau Leather, featuring one zip pocket and two slip pockets. The Kelly bag has stood the test of time, and clearly shows no signs of fading from the spotlight. This bag includes two keys, a lock, and a clochette.
This bag is in Good Condition. There is significant scratching to the hardware, darkening across the leather and canvas from wear, scuffing to the base and abase corners, the leather handle is cracked, there is creasing to the leather in places, there are a few dark stains throughout the canvas, and one large stain on the base canvas. The leather encasing the lock is peeling off, and the handle has cracked, revealing the interior raw leather. The clous are chipped and heavily scratched. The interior is darkened, scratched, scuffed, dented, and stained from age and wear. The clous have impressed upon the interior leather lining. There are dark stains and marks throughout the interior. This bag includes an Hermes dustbag. All wear is consistent with age.
