Hermès Kelly 20 Mini Sellier Jaune Courchevel leather Gold Hardware
Imagine owning a piece of Elizabeth Taylor's iconic collection with this tantalizingly similar bag, previously sold at Christie's on December 15th, 2011. While we can't confirm its direct lineage, the possibility of it being a part of her coveted collection is too delicious to ignore.
The Hermès mini Kelly bag has long been a symbol of luxury and elegance, and the original Mini 20 Sellier is the epitome of this iconic design. This particular bag, crafted from the finest Jaune Courchevel leather and adorned with gleaming gold hardware, is a true rarity. Produced by Hermès in 1991, it is no longer in production, making it a highly sought-after piece for collectors and fashion connoisseurs alike.
But this bag is more than just a fashion statement, it is a piece of history. It was once a cherished possession of the legendary Elizabeth Taylor, whose personal collection was highly respected and admired. To own this bag is to own a piece of Hollywood royalty, a tangible connection to one of the most iconic figures of our time.
