CITES compliance applies to this lot. Please see our Terms & Conditions.
The infamous Kelly bag was popularized by and renamed after Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco in the 1950's. The Hermes Kelly bag is one of the world's most sophisticated and elegant handbags. This particular Kelly is done in Cognac Ostrich, making this bag incredibly rare, as Hermes has reduced production of larger ostrich items. While the Sellier edges of this bag give it a polished look, the Palladium Hardware makes the bag a great option for daytime use. This bag features a top handle, shoulder strap, lock, keys, and clochette. The interior is done in Cognac Chevre Leather with two slip pockets and one zip pocket.
This bag is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. There is a white marking at the arm opening of the bag and faint scratching to the hardware. This bag comes with shoulder strap, lock, keys, clochette, care card, and Hermes dustbag.
