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. In 1977, the train’s décor was restored to its superb original condition. 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 so you may too sample the fabulous world evoked by the Orient Express.
