Drawing by Philippe Ledoux whose first edition was released in 1972. Printed fluid silk serge with a red background and hand-topstitched edges. Motifs representing soldiers climbed on large horse and carriage. There are horse-drawn carriages, stirrups, soldiers in uniform and many horses showing the greatness of certain horse and carriage. Label Hermès at the bottom right indicating Hermès Paris and Ledoux signature in the same corner. This Vintage carré has been cleaned, presence of very slight traces on the red edges and a small halo (see last photos), the only flaw to notice and really difficult to observe.
