Hermès Scarf
Scarf created by Hermès Paris with the design of Tour du monde en 80 jours / Around the World in 80 Days.

Hermès was founded in Paris France in 1837 as a Harness-Maker. One of the fashion accessories that they create is designer silk scarves. I believe they design 2 scarfs a year, and then retire the design.
The images on this page show the design Tour du monde en 80 jours, designed by LEDOUX. It was released in the year 19xx (?). The scarf measures 33-1/2" X 35". The border is done in gold and the background is a light ecru.
The scarf shows images from the story Around the World in 80 Days, including London & Paris, as well as a ship and a train. Underneath the train is a calendar with the date 1872, the date Verne's novel was published.
