All my life I have wanted this exact bag. I travelled the world from my home Store on Madison Ave, to Venice, to Rome....and everywhere in between. I scoured authorized dealers when finally, after 5 long years, I found my dream bag on Portero! Here it is....my 35 cm Kelly!

All she needs is a trip to the spa for a little buff and polish and she'll be perfect! Any consensus on the color? Portero called it auburgine. I agree with the ladies-- looks like raisin or prune. Any ideas?

Oh, the stamp on the inside flap is an F. I'm not sure what year that is if anyone knows offhand.

An F in a square is 2002.

Looks raisin on my monitor, however, the color of the stitching makes me think questche. Hmmm....

CONGRATS!!! She is STUNNING!!!

Thank you so much! According to my calculations the F stamp is 2002 and she is in great shape considering. Ill have the craftsman in NY confirm the color and then I'll get back to everyone. But its purple, so I'm happy!

Incidentally, here is the picture I saw a while back that started my obsession for a purple Kelly.

Raisin has raisin stitching normally - this doesn't, which is what is making me think prune box or quetsche. Don't know if quetsche came in box though.
