Hermes Kelly Sellier Bag 32cm Vintage 1971 Black Box Calf Leather Yellow Tone Hardware



Elegant vintage Hermes Kelly 32cm handbag with yellow gold-tone hardware. 

The black (noir) box calf leather bag is circa 1971. The bag was in need of some TLC and was sent to the Hermes workshop in Paris, France. The bag underwent the following:


Handle/Chapes/D-rings replacement

Side straps + plates replacement

Swivel clasp replacement

Flap plates replacement    

An email copy of the Hermes repair instructions will be supplied with the purchase of the bag. 

The bag comes with the clochette, lock and keys, and raincoat. The shoulder strap & dustbag is also included (not pictured).

If you are in the Los Angeles area the bag can be seen in person at our store in Torrance. Please allow 24-48 hours notice.

The overall condition of the bag is excellent since the spa treatment. The base of the bag features four yellow gold-tone protective feet.


Size & Measurements: The bag measures:

Handle Drop: 3.5"

Height: 9"

Width: 12.5"

Depth: 5"

Metal & Hallmark: Yellow Gold Tone (hardware). The hardware is hallmarked "Hermes Paris". The inner leather strap was replaced at the workshop in Paris and is stamped 'Y' (no shape) for 2020. The original strap was stamped with the letter "A" in a circle for the production year of 1971. We are no longer in possession of the original strap with the 1971 date code (this was kept by Hermes during the restoration of the bag).
