Paul Dupre-Lafon Hermes Paris Scissors, Paper Knife in Leather Scabbard, Signed

About the Item

A pair of scissors and letter opener in a handstitched, elephant gray leather scabbard by Paul Dupre-Lafon for Hermes, Paris. This desk set was well-used by its once 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 honest signs of wear and use throughout and has a great look as such.
