A rare and beautiful Hermès carre̒ from Francoise Facconet, the "La Clé des Champs" on a gorgeous scrolling “H” jacquard. “La clé des champs" could be translated word for word to "the key to the fields,” but it is actually an old French expression and a metaphor for "freedom", "liberty" or "to escape." The birds on this carré are meant to be free to fly wherever they wish. The colors are vibrant. The condition is near pristine with no conditions to delcare. This carré presents beautifully, in very gently pre-owned condition. The hems are plump, the silk jacquard is thick with no thinning, and the care tag is attached. As you may know, silk jacquard has become too cost prohibitive for Hermès to issue their designs on, and as such has become highly valuable to collectors.
