Hermes Letter Opener and Ruler

NO LONGER AVAILABLE
Description
In the hands of French silversmith Ravinet d’Enfert, a quotidian tool becomes a sculptural object fit for display on top of a desk rather than stowed within it. This vintage letter opener and ruler was made for Hermès and bears the Ravinet d’Enfert mark as well as an enigmatic inscription—Fondation ‘J’ 1968—that attests to its vintage. Unfurling from a curled edge in the form of a tape measure, the ribbon-like form of silver-plated bronze is both decorative and functional, with one flat edge calibrated in metric units along a span of 15 centimeters.
