Puiforcat (Hermes) - Serving European Aristocracy for Generations !

The history of French silversmithing is rich and diverse, with numerous artisans and firms that have contributed to its enduring legacy. Among these, Puiforcat stands as a testament to the craftsmanship and artistry that has defined this industry for generations.  The Puiforcat legacy began in 1820, when Emile Puiforcat founded his eponymous silversmith workshop in Paris. Emile was inspired by the rich heritage of French craftsmanship and sought to revive the art of silversmithing, which had faced decline during the tumultuous period of the French Revolution.  Puiforcat was instrumental in reviving and elevating the art, offering not only functional silverware but also beautifully designed and meticulously crafted pieces that were celebrated for their aesthetic and utilitarian value.

The firm quickly established a reputation for artistic innovation. Emile Puiforcat's meticulous attention to detail and his commitment to excellence pushed the boundaries of what could be achieved with silver.  Puiforcat's quality and artistry soon attracted the attention of the French aristocracy and the firm regularly received royal commissions from the court of King Louis-Philippe, cementing its status as a premier silversmith.  The exceptional quality and craftsmanship of Puiforcat's silverwork have also been acknowledged through numerous awards and honors.  It exhibited at various world fairs, including the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1900 and the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco in 1915. These exhibitions showcased the brand's exceptional craftsmanship to a global audience.  At the Exposition Universelle held in Paris in 1889, Puiforcat was awarded a gold medal for its outstanding silver creations. This recognition affirmed the company's place at the forefront of French silversmithing. 

In 1993, the house of Puiforcat became a part of the Hermès Group, a move that further elevated its status in the world of luxury craftsmanship. Hermès, renowned for its commitment to artisanship and fine materials, was a natural fit for Puiforcat. Under the ownership of Hermès, Puiforcat has continued to thrive and innovate, maintaining its reputation as a premier silversmithing brand.

The collaboration between Puiforcat and Hermès has yielded further recognition and accolades.  In recognition of the exceptional collaboration between Puiforcat and Hermès, the brand received the Grand Prix de la Création de la Ville de Paris in 1994. This award celebrated the excellence in design and craftsmanship that the union of these two iconic brands had brought forth. 

The history of Puiforcat is a testament to the enduring legacy of French silversmithing. From its founding in the 19th century to its current association with the Hermès Group, Puiforcat has consistently represented the pinnacle of silver craftsmanship. The brand's accomplishments and awards, from its royal commissions to international recognition, showcase its unwavering commitment to quality and innovation. The collaboration with Hermès has further elevated Puiforcat's position in the world of luxury craftsmanship, ensuring that its legacy continues to shine brightly. As Puiforcat continues to innovate and create exquisite silverware, it upholds the traditions and values that have made it a symbol of excellence in the art of silversmithing.
