Vintage HERMES 1995 UN 50th Anniversary Silk Scarf Rare!

Item: #20504

This is a rare, 1995 special edition silk scarf by Hermes, commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the signing of the UN Charter.
Designed by Joachim Metz.
Doves carrying olive branches on a scarf that features fantastic colors. Above a gilded cage is a banner that reads: We the People of the United Nations United for a Better World for All.

In pristine condition, this collector's scarf does not appear to be worn.
Silk feels crisp.
Original folds.
Has its two labels (see photo).

Would look stunning framed. You can order from Hermes their scarf-hanging system. I have also seen this scarf fashioned into an oblong cushion but it would kill me to cut up such a beautiful scarf.

Scarf comes with box (box not pristine) and tissue paper.

Vintage HERMES by J. Metz 1789 République Francaise Liberte Egality Fraternite Silk Scarf

Item: #20443

Vintage 1980 HERMES "1789 R??publique Francaise Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite" Silk Scarf

This colorful silk scarf was designed by Joachim Metz (same designer who designed the dove scarf for the UN 50 year commemoration) in 1989. The scarf comes also in a red color way, as well as in hello. in plus the gorgeous blue I am offering here. Please note that the blue is true not in the first picture but all subsequent photos.

In excellent condition I wore this scarf just a few times. Silk is crisp. Original folds remain.

The colors sing in this scarf. Of the three color-ways Hermes offered in this particular scarf, the rich blue is the most dramatic.

Great worn but even better displayed on the wall. You can purchase an Hermes Scarf system or you could have the scarf framed. I have also seen this scarf fashioned into a pillow.

I will include an Hermes box with this scarf.

Please note that the scarf is held up by magnets on the top so I could take a decent full-size photo.
