Of all the unusual versions of classic Hermes bags, some of the hardest to find have markings reserved exclusively for the brand’s employees. The instantly recognizable ‘shooting star’ stamp which indicates a bag made for its crafter’s personal use is prized by collectors, but another, more subtle stamp exists for other Hermes employees. These bags are stamped with the date and craftsman’s mark right beside the brand stamping, a subtle detail most collectors will never have seen before! This Kelly is one such example, a 25cm Sellier Kelly in vibrant Rose Azalee Epsom with cool Palladium hardware. Maintained in fresh condition, this charming Kelly features a fan-favorite pink, powerful and saturated, but not loud, Azalee is known to work well with many other colors.

Where used in this sale the term "hardware" refers to the metallic parts of the bag, such as the buckle hardware, base studs, lock and keys and/or strap, which are plated with a coloured finish (e.g. gold, silver, palladium). The terms "Gold Hardware", "Silver Hardware", "Palladium Hardware" etc. refer to the tone or colour of the hardware and not the actual material used. If the bag incorporates solid metal hardware this will be referenced in the lot description.
