The House Cardeilhac was founded by Antoine-Vital Cardeilhac in 1804 and was a favorite of Napoleon, Empress Josephine and aristocracy throughout Europe. Renowned for their high quality workmanship and impressive designs, the firm exhibited and won medals in most exhibitions of the 19th century - Gold Medal, Universal Exhibition of 1878; Silver Medal, Universal Exhibition of 1889; Medal "First Class", Universal Exhibition of 1855; Grand Prize, Universal Exhibition of 1889 to name a few. From 1851 until 1885, Antoine-Vital's son Armand-Edouard ran the company and in 1885 his grandson, Ernest Cardeilhac became the head of the company. It was with Ernest Cardeilhac that gold and vermeil silver-smithing was introduced to the firm. Amélie, widow of Armand-Edouard Cardeilhac, ran the company from 1904 till 1913 from the prestigious 24 place Vendome before moving to 91 rue de Rivoli in 1913. Finally in 1920 both sons of Ernest Cardeilhac, Jacques and Pierre, took over the business until 1951, when the company merged with Christofle. This amazing tea set in the very rare Renaissance pattern is a stunning example of the elegance and quality for which the firm was internationally known.
