This exquisite Hermes scarf issued in 1993 is entitled "L'Instruction du Roy". It was inspired by a 17th century book written by Antoine de Pluvinel, titled L’instruction Du Roy: En L’exercice De Monter a Cheval, (Instruction of the King: in the Art of Horsemanship). Designed by Henri d’Origny, the scarf features elaborately entwined equestian elements of reins, bridles and bits in rich hues of gold and cream on a pure black background. It's crafted in 100% silk jacquard with a wonderful rearing horse and rider motif woven into the fabric, shown held up to bright light in photo #8. A hand rolled and stitched hem to the front finishes the piece.
The scarf measures 35" by 34-1/2". It's in perfect condition with no snags, pin holes, runs or color fading and the care tag is still attached. This stunning scarf is truly an Hermes classic.
