* Cardeilhac House (Paris 1804-1951)

Established in 1804 by Antoine-Vital Cardeilhac and specializing 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 the goldsmith Harleux, took over the management. It is with this that the production of gold and silver pieces begins. He organizes his workshops for this production and buys the fund of the Lebon house. Assisted by three artists: the draftsman Lucien Bonvallet, the sculptor Aiguier and the engraver Viat, he presented his first works in 1889 at the Universal Exhibition and won a silver medal. At the Universal Exhibition of 1900, he achieved great success with pieces executed from the drawings of Lucien Bonvallet, where the ornamentation of vegetable and sober inspiration 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.
