DESIGN HISTORY

Creator of great classics of the house such as the famous Brides de gala, Hugo Grygkar composed this scarf in 1946. An ex-libris is a distinctive marking chosen by a booklover to personalise the works in his library. In 1923, Émile‑Maurice Hermès, the grandson of the founder of the house, chose to this effect a design by Alfred de Dreux (1810-1860) preserved in his collection: Duc attelé, groom à l’attente, which he placed above his initials EMH. From one side to the other, a caducée, attribute of the Greek god Hermès, symbolises peace and commercial transactions. This design became the emblem of the house. Around this medallion four elegant horse-drawn carriages are inspired by the original designs of carriagemakers conserved in the Émile Hermès collection.
