Paul Dupre-Lafon Hermes Paris Scissors, Letter Opener in Leather Scabbard Signed



A pair of scissors and paper knife in a handstitched, elephant gray leather scabbard by Paul Dupre-Lafon for Hermes, Paris. This desk set was well-enjoyed by its former owner who was apparently an employee of the Bayer pharmaceutical company - - both instruments bear the Bayer company logo, implying that it was perhaps a corporate gift. Leather is embossed Hermes Paris to the reverse. The set exhibits vintage character and related wear throughout and has a great look as such.
