A truly luxurious find, I have only ever seen these before in silver plate, this one in sterling silver with the "Minerva" mark (corresponding to 950/1000 for French silver).
The wooden interior moves out halfway one end and halfway the other end. Perfect for playing cards, this one came to us with some cards in it.
It is also hallmarked for the top notch silversmith, Ravinet d’Enfert, who made all of Hermes silver pieces.
The company founded in 1845 by E. Tonnelier was acquired in 1882 by Louis Ravinet (1854-1925). In 1891, Charles d’Enfert (1865-1960) entered into a partnership with Louis Ravinet and the company took the denomination of Ravinet d’Enfert. Ravinet d’Enfert has been located in Paris for more than a century at the Hotel de Caumartin, 83 rue du Temple in the « Marais ».
The firm participated on a regular basis in exhibitions and received high rewards: gold medals at the Lyon Universal Exhibition in 1894 and Brussels in 1897. Ravinet d’Enfert was exhibiting in the International exhibitions of 1900, 1925 and 1937, and obtained a silver medal in Brussels in 1958.
Signed on the back for the iconic luxury brand, "Hermes Paris".
Excellent condition measuring 6 5/8" x 4" x 1"
457 Grams / 14.68 Troy Ounces with wood / without cards.
