About the maker: Tetard Freres originally started by Edmond Tetard in 1860 in Paris. Tétard, along with Puiforcat and Christofle, was one of the leading makers of French Art Deco silver. With a long history of exceptional silversmithing which includes gold medals at 19th century world fairs, Maison Tétard began making silver in the style moderne during the 1920’s under the design leadership of Valéry Bizouard. In 1930, Bizouard was joined by Jean Tétard. Together, they are responsible for one of the finest bodies of French Art Deco designs.
