Hermes Petite Venerie Red CW Early Issue
Petite Venerie was designed by Charles Hallo and originally issued in 1968. Like so many of Monsieur Hallo's scarves, the subject matter is the hunt, but here, just a petite rabbit hunt.
What I personally believe makes this carre so beautiful and rich, is its background where Mr. Hallo skilfully replays various scenes in a Toile-like manner. And so a story is told and retold...
As far as the condition is concerned, yes, this scarf has been loved and enjoyed over the years. Great color saturation gives this scarf its vibrancy still and when worn its imperfections disappear into the background that Monsieur Hallo so masterfully created...
Perhaps now it is your turn to enjoy this Petite Venerie?
