An iconic Hermes style, the Kelly is a highly-coveted accessory radiating of true French luxury. The legendary bag was first produced in 1935 under the name 'Sac a depeches'. In 1956, Grace Kelly was photographed carrying the handbag to conceal her pregnancy, and it was shortly thereafter christened the 'Kelly'. This specific piece is crafted with smooth black Box Calf leather, which is known for its glossy finish. In the 'retourne' design, this piece is outlined by a thin piping along the edges. Topped with gold-plated hardware, this handbag is the ultimate example of elegant sophistication. Made in 1973. Stamped ( C ).
