HERMES 90CM SILK SCARF - QALAMDAN BY CATHERINE BASCHET
Catherine Baschet was inspired by Persian pencil boxes which were status symbols in the 1700s and 1800s. A 'qalamdan' is designed in great detail and her 1990 scarf captures the intricacy.
Scarf title: Qalamdan
Issue date: 1990
Size: appx 35” x 35” (carre, or foulard)
Material: 100% silk twill
This black colorway is perfect for highlighting the bright greens, pinks, oranges, yellows and purples of the boxes. A closer look reveals flowers, horse riders, and birds. It almost glows like stained glass.
There are a couple of small/faint marks as shown in the final photo.
