The "Art de la Table Hermès" collection debuted at the beginning of 1980. This magnificent plate belongs to the "Balcon du Guadalquivir" porcelain set, created in 2005. The golden hand-painted arabesque echoes the wrought iron craftsmanship typical of the Andalusian region. On the background the "Fil d'Argent" cotton fabric is displayed in its "anise" shade. The stylized horse-bite motif, designed by the renowned french design Henri d'Origny, has become iconic.
Jockeys are finely depicted on the "Finish" motif, designed by Jean-Louis Clercon, here printed on cotton fabric. It is a tribute to the equestrian origins of the Maison, born in 1837, when Thierry Hermès opened his artisanal saddlery lab in Paris.
