A stunning collectable iconic ultra rare vintage 1970 Kelly 32 Cognac colour handbag. Considering it’s 53 years old age this Kelly bag is in very good condition with only a few minor signs of age related wear. It is handcrafted in box calf leather, a very rigid and stunning leather in a beautiful very very rare Cognac colour, similar to the vintage Kelly bag that was exhibited in 2012 by Hermès (Copyright photo attached by Hermès – Vogue, Harper Collins Publishers). The Cognac leather is a naturally aged leather with a shade of brown with lovely subtle reddish undertones. The same bag in Cognac colour was first exhibited by Hermès when they hosted a new exhibition in London, entitled Leather Forever which was their first exhibition held in the Royal Academy of Art’s sister space. Featuring some of the historic label’s most famous designs. Celebrating Hermès’ 175th anniversary… A ‘Must-Have’ vintage Hermès rare Kelly 32 cognac colour collectable investment bag. The vintage Hermès scarf Feuilles d’Automne styled in the photos is for sale separately under Accessories – Scarves.
