Hermes Crocodile Kelly Bag Handbag

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is one of the nicest crocodile Hermes kelly bags we have offered. The original owner was a woman who was a senior manager for the New York Public Library. Her husband was an accountant for Hermes. We believe the bag dates from the 1960's.

It is obvious she treasured the bag because it is in lovely vintage condition. There is no cracking in the handle, locking strap, gussets, nor shoulders. It is completely original.
