Hermes Silk Jacquard Scarf Napoleon RARE
The iconic Napoleon silk jacquard scarf was designed by Philippe Ledoux and HERMES first issued this stunning jacquard scarf in 1963.
The 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.
Ledoux, the master of detail and story depiction, and perhaps the most beloved of all Hermes designers, has created an unforgettable scarf, a true timeless classic worthy of any great collection.
