Engine-turned wine taster

This silver Hermès wine taster (tastevin) perfectly captures early 20thcentury decadence. Seeking one out from arguably one of the finest purveyors of luxury goods, pushes the concept to the extreme. Not that we would have it any other way.

Hermès needs no introduction. The French luxury goods manufacturer’s history dates back to 1837, when Thierry Hermès first established a harness workshop in the Grands Boulevards quarter of Paris, dedicated to serving European noblemen. Over its history, Hermès has been known as a destination for individuals of refinement and discernment, seeking articles of exclusive design and high quality.

Made by renowned Parisian silversmith Ravinet d'Enfert, for Hermès Paris, this wine taster is refined and elegant in design. The silver case features an engine-turned pattern, with a small circle on the inner base kept bare, usually reserved for owners to monogram their initials onto. The soldered handle on the back of the pot, allowing to hold the taster to the mouth, has a design reminiscent of Hermès’ equestrian origins. Outside of the tray, the manufactures hallmarks and "Hermès Paris" are neatly displayed.

Whether used for its original function by a wine lover, or repurposed for alternate use as an ashtray or catchall, we hope that the refined decadence of this silver Hermès objet d'art will endure.
