Vintage Hermes Blue Gold Tiger Silk Scarf and Irish Linen Cushion Pillow

About

The ‘crème de la crème’ of scarves, this beauty is a one-of-a-kind custom made luxury cushion (pillow) from an exquisite vintage silk Hermes fashion scarf featuring a seated tiger amongst a luscious wreath. The French company began in 1837 producing superior quality leather goods, harnesses and saddles, which makes sense that 100 years later the main theme on their luxury scarves is equestrian. Hermes scarves, known as ‘carre’ (squares), have become a symbol of French chic and are a highly desirable object across the globe that still continues to delight. Favoured by the ‘jet-setters’ of the 1950s and 1960s and gaining iconic status by Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and even Queen Elizabeth II. The beautiful illustration detailing the proud, exotic animal gazing at the viewer with a striking stare, is called ‘Le Tigre Royal’ and was designed by Christiane Vauzelles in 1977. It is indeed very regal and is crested by a crown at the top. In subtle shades of antique champagne gold on a ground of mud subtle teal blue, it would make both a flamboyant and elegant showpiece for an interior, a jewel as the icing on the cake. The ‘Hermes’ signature adorns the elaborate piece prominently at the front in a plaque and the plant like golf leaves curl gracefully meeting in the middle tied in a beribboned bow like form. Extra markings show ‘C.Hermes’ in faint gold on the top left hand corner. With a delicately hand rolled and hemmed edge, a distinctive French style finish of all Hermes scarves. On a quality twill silk with beautiful texture and diagonal grain. Backed in new 100% pure Irish linen, the aristocrat of textiles and certified by the Irish Linen Guild, lined in a layer of natural bamboo wadding, filled with new plush duck feather insert and a concealed zip. The traditional oatmeal color linen is a combination of the unbleached raw colour of the natural flax plant on the weft intertwined with pristine white on the warp, resulting in a beautiful mottled effect. A contemporary cushion (pillow) constructed with antique elements by using fragments of precious fabric. Handcrafted in Ireland By designer-maker Katie Larmour Perfect condition Color: Champagne gold, antique gold, yellow ochre, blue, Sean blue, teal, navy, mustard, soft black, tan, beige, brown, cream and off white. Please note that due to flash photography the blue appears slightly lighter in the photographs than in real life. Tags: Art Deco style.
