Hermes Weather Compendium, Paul Dupre-Lafon


A rare and important weather compendium, designed by Paul Dupre-Lafon for Hermes. Consisting of a clock, perpetual calendar, barometer, thermometer, and compass all set upon a top-stitched leather base, this exceptional piece is the largest size they made and rarely is seen out of private collections.

This is a perfect example of Paul Dupre-Lafon's combined sense of practicality and luxury that he employed into his works with Hermes.

Circa 1940s
