* Cardeilhac House (Paris 1804-1951)

Established in 1804 by Antoine-Vital Cardeilhac and specialized in cutlery and flatware, the house was run from 1851 to 1904 by his son Armand-Edouard Cardeilhac. From 1885, his son, Ernest Cardeilhac (1851-1904) after an apprenticeship with Harleux goldsmith, took over management. It is with this one that begins the realization of gold and silver pieces of goldsmith's work. He organizes his workshops for this production and buys the funds of the house Lebon. Assisted by three artists: the draftsman Lucien Bonvallet, the sculptor Aiguier and the engraver Viat, he presented his first works in 1889 at the World Expo and won a silver medal. At the Universal Exhibition of 1900, he obtained a great success with pieces executed according to the drawings of Lucien Bonvallet, where the plant-inspired and sober ornamentation is animated by the association with metal of materials such as wood. , ivory and patinas. In 1904, his two sons, Jacques and Pierre, succeeded him. The company was taken over by Christofle in 1951.
