Hermès: the horse and carriage logo

The profile of a horse-drawn carriage with driver is instantly recognizable as the Hermès logo.

The logo is based on a drawing by Alfred de Dreux, entitled "Duc Attele, Groom a L'Attente". Bought by Emile-Maurice Hermès for his curio-filled office back in the 1920s, the drawing still hangs above the fireplace in the collector's old study, located on the second floor of 24 rue du Faubourg St Honoré.
