Gorgeous Napoleon in excellent vintage condition. Designed by Philippe Ledoux for Hermes, this iconic scarf was first issued in 1963 and based on the copyright is most likely original issue ("c" part of design, please see close up).

This bee jacquard carre pays homage to Napoleon Bonaparte. Five vignettes depict the French emperor in great detail throughout his reign.
Bee, the symbol of immortality and resurrection, as to link the new dynasty to the very origins of France, was chosen by Napoleon along with the eagle, to be emblems of the Empire.
