Hermes Grand Apparat classic vintage mustard border with blue and cream accents

Hermes Grand Apparat classic vintage mustard border with blue and cream accents

$ 250.00


This is a scarf designed by Jacques Eudel in 1962. The term, "Grand Apparat" is difficult to translate but roughly means, "Full Regalia" It's a traditional Hermes equestrian theme with a mustard border and an interior that's dominated by white, gold, blue, and related colors. The horses are gorgeous.

This is evidently an older version, not a recent reedition and, considering that it may well have been from the first edition in 1961, it's in very good vintage condition. This include a slight fading to the pattern (nobody would notice this but you can see that modern Hermes scarves are a bit sharper) and there is some slight running of the color, again, not noticeable, I have a hard time seeing these).

I bought this from an elderly woman who took care of it and loved it, purchasing it herself on a trip long ago). I believe her. If you ask me, the soft aged silk is so much nicer than the crisper modern ones. 35 inches square. 90 cm. Heavy silk. Hand-rolled. Tags removed. Free domestic shipping.
