trying to identify an Hermes scarf

Long shot: I bought an Hermes scarf about 20 years ago that I want to sell. I'm trying to figure out its name. It is of a large open book.

I'm sure the Hermes store in NY would be able to tell. Probably even over the phone.

Best answer: A very complete database of Hermes scarves is here.

If you don't get the answer you need, memail me and I'll try and get you an answer: a friend's SO runs their archive in Paris.

Response by poster: You guys are the greatest.

Neither of the pictured ones are it. It's one large open book.

I called Hermes in Manhattan. They are so very not interested in helping.

I found that database after I posed, and it's not there.

MuffinMan, I shall e-mail. You're very kind.

I have to find my camera.

Thanks, all.

Response by poster: And LOLAttorney2009, it IS that one, too. Just different coloring. This is an amazing community.
