Hermès Scarf entitled Jonques et Sampans by Françoise de la Perrière Circa 1966
A Vintage Hermès silk Scarf entitled Jonques et Sampans in silk twill printed in shades of blue and golden yellow. This is most likely the first edition of a design by Françoise de la Perrière dating from 1966. A second, later edition dates from 1991. Fluid printed silk twill with hand-rolled edges. Motifs depicting junks and Chinese boats framed by the prows of 18th century Indies Company ships. Given its age, this scarf has a very supple silk with a few rare and discreet halos (see the last 4 photos). On the other hand, there are no holes and the silk is very resistant. Good condition. This is a rare item and the price is commensurate with its minor flaws. To collect or to wear!
