Description: The Sac EPERON from Hermès is certainly a highlight of the pre-Christmas auction in our
house. This model was first designed in black crocodile leather in 1940 for Rita
Hayworth by Robert Dumas. Rita Hayworth, Hollywood goddess of the time, was so popular
that her face adorned even the bombers of the American army. The international customers
of the Hermès company were later able to have a model made individually in various colors
and materials. Each bag was a unique piece of craftsmanship from the studios on Rue du
Faubourg Saint-Honoré. The bag offered today was individually ordered by the then
customer for his wife in natural pigskin leather in a combination with Toile H, an iconic
fabric of the house, and delivered to her before Christmas 1952 with her initials embossed
on it. Even the order card still exists and impressively documents the provenance. This
piece is a special example of how the classic and valuable workmanship is still just as
desirable and highly topical after 68 years. The Toile H combined with Barenia leather is
today one of the favorite combinations of true Hermès connoisseurs. Now the wonderfully
preserved piece is back on the Christmas table after 68 years. Original packaging
enclosed. Condition as good as new.
