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. It was shortly thereafter christened the 'Kelly'. This specific piece is crafted with exceptionally fine ebene Porosus Crocodile, which is recognized as the premier Hermes leather due to its exotic nature and symmetrical scale pattern. In the sellier design, it is not outlined by a thin piping along the edges. Complete with gold-plated hardware, this Kelly is an un-paralleled masterpiece of elegant sophistication. Made circa 1960. Stamped P.
