    It does not get much more classic than this Kelly bag. Hermes introduced the Kelly bag in the 1930s and the bag takes it name from Grace Kelly, a fan of the bag who notably used it to shield her pregnancy from the public in 1950s. This particular Kelly is done in one of the most desirable color, leather and hardware combinations. This bag is done in beautiful Black Calf Box Leather and accented with Gold Hardware. Calf Box leather is known for its smooth appearance and shiny finish. This bag features a top handle, shoulder strap, lock, keys and clochette. The interior is done in Black Chevre Leather with one zip pocket and two slip pockets.

    This bag is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. There are slight signs of wear to the base corners and a few scratches to the hardware. There are a few faint scratches to the leather near the opening of the bag, and scratching throughout the leather.
