Vintage Hermes Kelly Bag Retourne Brown Box Leather 35cm Top Handle Bag 1945

About the Item

This fabulous handbag was made by Hermes in 1945. Originally coined the Sac a Depeches - this piece was made about 12 years before Grace Kelly wore the style that we now know as the Kelly bag. Made from Hermes signature box leather in a deep brown color, this bag is lined in caramel colored goatskin and features brown stitching (most likely this was a custom order). The interior features one split pocket and one open pocket inside, typical of the period as Hermes did not include interior zippers on the Kelly bags until much later production years. Preowned/vintage (70+ years old) with signs of age, use and prior wear: we note a fine patina to the box leather, some fingernail scratches and scuffs (most notable to the bottom and edges) and some scratching to the gold hardware. The handle and sides show some very light surface cracking, which is a common issue with the vintage Hermes bags, however it still retains its shape, with no tears or rips (see last three images). The interior is clean. Stamped with an A, indicating a 1945 production year. Please note that the original brass lock is attached to the handle and we'll ship this bag with an Hermes dust cover, however NO clochette, key or shoulder strap is included. It measures approximately 10in H x 13in L x 4in D with a 5in handle drop and is stamped HERMES PARIS MADE IN FRANCE. Note that this bag has been authenticated by ENTRUPY and a copy of the certificate will be included.
