Update : This is an original vintage Hermes Scarf, the pattern Sous Bois was issued in 1954, the artist being Francoise Heron. It appears that there were 2 issues for this pattern of the animals, birds and insects with floral vegetation - the original one in1954 and a later one in the 1970's. You can see this scarf on the HSCI Hermes Catalogue. I was advised when I bought this scarf it was from the 1950's, it appears theC in a circleit indicatesthe later model.On 07-Jul-13 at 10:24:25 BST, seller added the following information:
I have had to revise the condition of this rare Hermes scarf - when looking at the scarf in the bright light I have noticed along the outer fold on the light area that there is light marking on the line of the fold,it does not detract from the scarf, there is also a tiny blemish to the right side below the bird. I will accept a return for this item. It is still a very nice and rare scarf and the silk in a nice condition. Apologies to anyone who has already offer on the scarf for this update. I have also came across a Hermes box this isn't the original, not sure what it contained but the scarf looks nice in it.
