Petite Vénerie was designed by Charles Jean Hallo and originally issued in 1968. Like so many of Monsieur Hallo’s scarves, the subject matter is the hunt, but here, just a petite rabbit hunt.
The Petite Vénerie carre is quite sought after by collectors around the globe and no serious Hermes scarf collection should be without this stunning design. To my knowledge this design was issued in five colorways, red, tan, navy, teal and rust with red being most prevalent.
What I personally believe makes this carre so beautiful and rich, is its background where Mr. Hallo skillfully replays various hunting scenes for us in a Toile-like manner.
And so a story is told and retold…
