what's the age of your oldest hermes?

  1. i've just been thinking of the quality and craftmanship of hermes bags. and i'm now wondering how long can a hermes bag last (assuming the bag is used with love and care)?

    what's your oldest hermes bag and what's her age?

    do share.....TIA:flowers:
     
  2. My eldest is 4 years old.
     
  3. Mine is five years.
     
  4. I have a 1993 Croc Kelly
     
  5. I have a 1978 rouge h box constance GH that I use often.
     
  6. My first Kelly was a 1959 black box retourne with gold hardware. She is still going strong, she has a couple issues and is a llittle crackly in a couple of bend spots, but she is gorgeous! 48 years young.

  7. My beloved Croc Kelly is from the 1950's and the oldest is my Marron (although I can't be sure of this color) Box calf Kelly with what looks like a sideways "V" on the strap and that's it. Both with brass hardware.......:love::love::love:
