This version of the Panache & Fantaisie Hermès© Carré is a Limited Edition issue commemorating the 1984 French Exhibition, which celebrated 100 Years of the French Automobile.
This event was held at the fabulous Grand Palais where cars from manufacturers like Citroën, Peugeot and Renault were on display from June through August.
The Limited Edition Panache & Fantaisie was first designed by Hugo Grygkar in 1959. As a Limited Issue, this particular 1984 version is as elusive as it is highly collectable.
