Hermes Silk Scarf Les Poulains Xavier de Poret Unworn Extremely Rare
Les Poulains, "the Foals", was created by Xavier de Poret, a famous and accomplished artist. All of his, and I believe 14 in all, creations for the Maison Hermes are highly sought after and collected the world over. Although he specialized in drawing birds and animals, he was also an accomplished portrait artist.
I will be writing a short biography on Monsieur de Poret on my blog.
This beautiful scarf dates back to 1960 and is in pristine unworn condition. It comes with its original packaging. I found the packaging with 6 Hermes locations in addition to the Hermès Rue Du Faubourg St. Honoré Flagship Store quite interesting, given that today Hermes has over 300 boutiques worldwide.
Truly a rare find...
