* Goldsmith Tétard Frères:

House founded in 1880 by Edmond Tétard (1860-1901) following the purchase of the house of Mr. Hugo. In 1889, he participated in the Universal Exhibition and received a gold medal. The house specializes in services and shaped pieces in the Louis XV style. In 1901, the house was taken over by his three sons, Henri, Jacques and Georges under the company name Tétard Frères. From the 1920s, the house worked on the models of Valéry Bizouard (1875-1945) and Louis Tardy (1881-1978), avant-garde designers. Jean Tétard (1907-1980), son of Henri, also designed models for his father's workshop. At the International Colonial Exhibition of 1931, Tétard frères won an exceptional prize list: ten medals were awarded to the creators of models and collaborators of the house.
