Hermes Paris Sterling Silver Compass Paperweight

Fabulous Hermes Paperweight in solid sterling silver. Rare Compass form, and it works, too! Made in France, for the House of Hermes by Ravinet D’Enfert. Marked with the makers mark R/Club/D in a Diamond, Minerva mark No. 1 for 950/1000 silver (finer than sterling). Ravinet D’Enfert has been in business since 1891, and is considered one of the top silversmiths in Europe. Compass measures 4 inches (10.2 cm) in diameter, and weighs approximately 9.11 Troy ounces (283.5 grams). Circa 1920’s or earlier judging from the fine quality of the workmanship. Condition is excellent, with one small ding on the base ring as can be seen in the photographs. Does not detract from this very exceptional piece.
