Hermés Vintage 1980 Kelly 32CM Tan Ostrich Bag

About

Exquisite vintage Hermés Kelly handbag in tan ostrich with detachable shoulder strap, original Hermés dust bag and gold tone hardware, lock, clochette and key. This is not your typical Hermes bag, this fine vintage example is something special and something unique. Don't buy this bag because you want the newest thing fresh off the factory line, let your friends be the typical ones with the newest Hermes Kelly or Birkin in Palladium. Select this incredible rarity because you are a connoisseur and collector of objet d'art. Choose this special collector's piece because you are unique and need a bag to reflect it. Choose this refined item of history because of your discriminating taste. Founded by Thierry Hermès in Paris, France, 1837, Hermès specializes in many luxurious goods such as leather, watches, jewelry and home furnishings. In 1935, Hermès launched one of their most notable goods, the Sac à dépêches bag, eventually renamed to the "Kelly" bag, designed by Robert Dumas. The bag was renamed after the Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly. Kelly used the bag to shield herself when being hounded by paparazzi, an image that made covers of hundreds of magazines world over. The Kelly bag can take 18 to 24 hours for an artisan-craftsman to put together, so there is no doubt that the bag is made with care and precision. There are many steps taken to create this highly-coveted bag; such as the tedious process of checking the leather for any defects. A single craftsman works on the bag during the entire process until completion.
