This striking red, white and blue Kelly was created as a special limited edition in 1994 to celebrate the opening of the chunnel which connects England and France and allows passengers to travel between the two countries in merely 35 minutes, a revolution in European travel. The red, white, and blue box leather that make up this 32cm Kelly represent both the French and English flags as one. This example is in excellent condition, the box leather, though 25 years old, still shines like a glossy new train.
