HERMES 90CM SILK SCARF - CHANTECLAIR BY MAURICE TRANCHANT
At first I thought this 1974 design (re-issued in 2002) paid homage to Chaucer's Canterbury Tale, but that tale is about a rooster and a fox. Since this features a rooster and a bird, it appears this scarf was inspired by the 1910 play by Rostand which features a proud crowing rooster who is loved by a golden pheasant with beautiful plumage (there is also a nightingale, a blackbird, a guinea hen and gamecocks, and an evil hawk).
Scarf title: Chanteclair
Scarf designer: Maurice Tranchant
Year of Issue: 1974 (based on the folded caretag this is from the original issue rather than the 2002 re-issue)
Size: appx 35” x 35” or 90cm square when stretched flat
Material: 100% silk twill
This colorway is a beautiful teal green with golden yellow. There appears to be a matte pale gold ink which adds a unique depth to the design.
This 49-year-old scarf is in excellent condition for its age. The hems are plump, the caretag is attached. I see no holes, pulls or runs.
