Exceedingly Rare Vintage Equestrian Gold Plated HERMES PARIS Armchair Trays / Pin TraysThis lot is for a pair of Hermés Paris tete de cheval trays with weighted leather straps designed to hang over the arms of a chair or sofa. This exquisite pair of exceedingly rare trays was designed and made in approx. 1970 by the luxury brand Hermes. The horse head is beautifully modelled in perfect detail and then cast in metal before being attached to the tray and gold plated. The polished high-quality leather straps, which are weighted to allow the tray to sit perfectly on the arm of a chair or sofa without risk of being knocked over, exhibit a beautiful saddle stitch detail which extends around the entire edge of the rich deep-brown leather and around the weight itself. The straps are attached to the tray on the underside by a screwed plate, which holds the two elements tightly together.To find a single one of these items is rare, but to find a matching pair is probably unique. Wear is minimal but consistent with age yet does not detract in anyway from the imposing nature of these trays. The items are guaranteed authentic Hermes Paris and of the period 1960/70.Diameter of tray: 10 cm
Height of horse head: 5 cm
Length of straps: 43 cm
Width of straps at widest point: 8 cm
Total weight of both items: 1.06 kg
