Silver | Engine-turned
This silver Hermès cigarette pot perfectly captures early 20thcentury decadence. The fundamental idea of a cigarette pot is already somewhat self-indulgent, even for the 1930s. 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, this cigarette pot is refined and elegant in design. The silver case features an engine-turned pattern, with a small circle on the lid kept bare, usually reserved for owners to mongramme their initials onto. The handle on the back of the pot, allowing for easy opening and closing, has a design reminiscent of Hermès’ equestrian origins. Within the pot, a removeable divider was intended to facilitate the storage of cigarettes.
Whether used for its original function or repurposed for alternate use, we hope that the refined decadence of this silver Hermès cigarette pot will endure.
