Fabulous Vintage Hermès Silk Scarf “Poste et Cavalerie” or “Cavalry Posts (or Regiments)” was designed by Joachim Metz and first issued in 1986. This scarf is an original issue. he theme for this scarf is centered around the Sabretache (saber bag), a flat bag worn by an officer suspended from a belt attached to his saber. The Sabretache was usually heavily embroidered and beautifully adorned with the royal or regimental crest. It replaced a pocket typicality absent from uniforms of that period. Its numerous purposes varied from carrying orders to containing fire making utensils. The Sabretache was popular between the early 18th century and gradually phased out before the turn of the 20th century. All the Sabretaches in Monsieur Metz’s scarf date back to Louis XIV, the Sun King himself. Our pre-owned carré is in near pristine condition with no evidence of ever being worn. No issues to declare: fabric/care label attached; hems are intact, round and plump; no stains, spots, pin holes, snags or thread pulls. The colorway of pink, white, yellow gold and burnished gold and teal and black accents year round fashion elegance. The silk feels and colors appear “new.” There is no Hermès box for this scarf.
