This stunning twill silk scarf is titled "Brise de Charme." The noted artist and designer, Julia Abadie, did the graphics work for this, which was made in 1985. To my knowledge, it has never been re-issued.

With a background of a beautiful blue, it depicts, in marvelous detail and a rainbow of colors, a panoply of handpainted 18th and 19th century fans. As it should be, it is 90 cm square (35.4"), with handrolled stitched edges.

The scarf has never been used, and was only unfolded once for photographing. It comes with the Hermes box and tissue it has lived in all its life, along with the Hermes ribbon and bag.

Note: Hermes silk twill scarves currently sell for $295. It is Hermes' policy that, if a scarf is in original condition with its wrapping, they will exchange it for any scarf of similar type.
