    Lizard bags are extremely rare from Hermes, making this Gris Elephant Lizard Kelly an incredible addition to any collection. Perfectly paired with Gold Hardware, this bag is elegant and exudes sophistication. This Kelly features both a top handle and shoulder strap allowing it to be worn as a shoulder bag or carried by the handle. The interior is done in Gris Elephant Chevre Leather with one zip pocket and two slip pockets.

    This bag is in Fair Condition. There is moderate wear to the edges, to the Tiret, the shoulder strap, the top handle, and the base and base corners. There is scratching to the hardware, and slight rust to the keys. The lizard shows light fraying and scuffing on the base. The clochette and tiret are broken. The interior is lightly scratched from use. This bag includes an Hermes dustbag, two keys, a clochette, and a lock.
