Hermès, Mini Kelly 20
Mini Bag in Box 20 Kelly Brown 1950 in Excellent condition This bag belonged to the first wife of my grandfather, who died in 1950, so I date to the years 40/50. My own grandmother never used, juice-ment because he belonged to the "first wife"! On the death of my grandmother (1997), my mother put away in a cupboard, and I fell over last summer (2016). He was in perfect condition. I still led Hermès to make him a "grooming". Hermès workshops felt that the drum and girth plates of this "gem" of-vaient be replaced because weakened over time. 3 months later, it turned out that the fixing of plates having changed since the 40s, it was also necessary to replace the girth. This repair was not anticipated, it was offered to me. Cleaning and repairs cost 485 € (invoice will be attached) It is impeccable. The leather is very marked, both inside and outside. Strictly speaking, there is a scratch on the back, which can be seen according to the light exposure. The golden parts have all been replaced (except fasteners of the shoulder), they are sparkling. I left the plastic protections posed by Hermes on the replaced parts. The originality of this mini bag besides its size, is the lack of grip. According to Hermes, this is an old manufacturing (rather 50s), and it had probably been asked a handle for convenient side. Brown Leather Box It is in excellent condition, which is amazing! I specify: the pictures are not "arranged" ... Bag Dimensions: Basically: Length Width 20cm x 10cm Height: 14cm Length of the strap: 50cm Dustbag offered by Hermes, as well as a booklet on leather care. I also will provide a copy of the estimate and the cleaning bill I had tried to have a good estimate of the price ... I came out with no more information than the price of a new Kelly, and the fact that in sales rooms, this bag could see his bids up ... which does not do me much! So I fixed a price somewhat randomly, depending on the condition, originality, and age / rarity ... Do not hesitate to make proposals to me! I put on sale on several secure sites.
