I love these prints….when I saw them in a market in New York, I had to have them. Their wonderful deco illustrations are gorgeous and very rare to find on the market. I have seen several 1950’s and 1960’s ads but its very rare to find Hermes ads this old and in such good condition.
The Hermes name is synonymous with chic style and is the pinnacle of luxury. Any item with the Hermes mark is coveted the world over and these gorgeous fashion illustrations would look fabulous hung together anywhere in your home. These elegant pieces would get a lot of attention and I love their art deco design and framing. In 1837, Thierry Hermès (1801–1878) first established Hermès as a harness workshop on the Grand Boulevards quarter of Paris, dedicated to serving European noblemen. He created some of the finest wrought harnesses and bridles for the carriage trade. Monsieur Hermès earned citations included the first prize in its class in 1855 and the first-class medal in 1867 at the Expositions Universelles in Paris. Hermès’ son, Charles-Émile Hermès (1835–1919), took over management from his father and moved the shop in 1880 to 24 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, where it remains today. The company still caters to the élite of Europe, North Africa, Russia, Asia, and the Americas.
