    If this is authentic, it is an exceptional vintage piece. The Hermes stamp looks very old and says "Hermes Paris, 24 Fg Saint Honoré". It is the first time I see an Hemres Stamp giving the adress of the shop. It is either very old or fake.

    I 've Already seen "Hermes Paris" and "Hermes Paris Made in France", but never this version.

    What do you reckon?
     
  2. Ohhh. It's really beautiful. I so love the vintage pieces....and have many (non-Hermes) bags that are so lovely. They are like eye-candy for me and this one, if it's authentic and I can't tell, is just stunning!
     
  3. It is a beautiful Kelly. I've seen bags on eBay that have that stamp and I believe it is not fake, but I wouldn't know the age. The condition is not that great, but could look smashing if you want the old "vintage" look. The price is great and I love the color! I have a vintage croc 32 Kelly that was $9000 three years ago and it says "Hermes Paris"...the condition is good although it did have some scratches and stiching was undone inside the bag at the pocket seam. I sent it to Hermes for reconditioning and it looks superb!! Ask if the bag was ever reconditioned and it might be a good idea to do it anyway if you, in fact, purchase it.
     
  4. My vintage croc Pullman says:" Hermès, 24, Faubourg St.Honorè" I don't even think it says Paris, but I'm not sure; I can't check it out now because I left it with Hermès to be refurbished. My bag is from 1959, I think that was the first marking they did, then came Hermès-Paris, and in the 70' Hermès - Paris Made in France...:flowers:
