For 93 years after setting off on its maiden voyage from Paris to Constantinople on 4 October 1883, the Orient Express never ceased to fire the collective imagination. It was internationally famous as the backdrop for historic events, and for the celebrities who travelled on it. Well-known books and films have commemorated the luxury, romanticism, adventure and uniqueness that still characterise the Orient Express today. When James B. Sherwood undertook the revival of the Venice Simplon Orient-Express in 1977, he wished to restore the train’s décor to its superb original condition. He entrusted Gérard Gallet with the interior decoration to reflect the spirit of luxury and distinction of the roaring twenties. Ercuis was asked to design an original range of tableware engraved with the initials VSOE. Today, in agreement with VSOE, Ercuis has made selected pieces from a tea and coffee service available to its clients so that they too may sample the fabulous world evoked by the Orient Express.
