First spotted back in May of 2019 at a private Hermes press preview was a new and unbelievable size for the classic Sellier Kelly bag: 5cm. Yes, that is right, five centimeters. This new micro mini Kelly is more likely to be categorized as a charm than a bag, but a fully functional bag it is. The iconic gold Kelly closure is an exact miniaturization of the original, down to the stamping and the fully lined interior. The only differences are the lack of any interior pockets, and the silk wrapped handle and strap. Like the full-sized Kellys, these nano bags are very difficult to find at Hermes, and the exotic versions are even more scarce. This exceptional store-fresh example is done in shiny black Nilo Lizard, making it an enviable collector’s item that is a cut above the rest.

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.
