Hermès Kelly 20 Mini Sellier Shoulder Black Porosus Crocodile Gold Hardware - 1981
Hermès connoisseurs will be familiar with the vintage 20cm Kelly that was recently re-designed as the Mini Kelly 20 II, but some may never have seen this model: a highly useful version, designed with a soft shoulder strap, the perfect length to wear over the shoulder, and just short enough to still look right in the hand. These rare vintage Mini Kelly Shoulder models are loved for their ease of use and effortless styling, and this example is rendered in the most classic and luxurious combination of materials: shiny black porosus crocodile with gold hardware. Maintained in excellent condition over nearly three decades, this gem is a rare find, and the perfect addition to any collection.
Dimensions: 7.75”W (bottom widest) x 6.6”W (top widest) x 5.7"H x 3.5"D.
Strap drop: 9.2” (the shoulder strap is not a cross body strap and it's just for a shoulder bag).
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 colored finish (e.g. gold, silver, palladium). The terms refer to the tone or color of the hardware and not the actual material used. If hardware is composed of precious solid metals this will be referenced in the description.
