Hermes | 1960′s Rare Vintage | View!
Long ago, in 1837, Thierry Hermes began the delicate craft of making leather items for the saddler business. Saddles with a quality design and material were among the first Hermes products, and yet a visit to the famous Hermes store in Paris today will show you that the company still produces the finest collection of saddles, leather riding accessories, horse blankets, bridles, whips and riding boots that exists in the world today. One of its early designers was Lola PRUSAC. It’s first women collection was shown in Paris in 1929. The Hermes scarf was introduced in the early 1930s. The handbag made famous by Grace Kelly in 1956 was actually first manufactured almost 20 years earlier in 1930.
About the Bag: Hermes bags were the highest status symbol, which were carried by Princesses and royalty. It still is, today, one of the most renowned fashion icon. Fashionable women in France who carry a Hermes bag are most likely a vintage. In France, carrying a vintage Hermes bag is considered more respectable and original than using a brand new one you can buy at the store. It has the elegance of a Hermes Kelly bag, but it is more unique and harder to find.
This vintage Hermes bag is entirely made in very soft dark brown leather. It features a one of a kind opening gold buckle in the front, which is signed “HERMES” in the back. You will find “HERMES PARIS” stamped gold inside. There are no tears, no stains, no cuts and no dents. It is a very hard to find Hermes collector’s item originated from the late 50′s to 60′s.
About the Seller: All items are guaranteed authentic or your money back. All-From-France is a long time MyPoupette recommended reseller of 5 years and counting.
