The House of Puiforcat (now owned by Hermes) was founded in 1820 by Émile Puiforcat who worked predominantly as a cutler with his brother Pierre-Joseph-Marie Puiforcat and their maternal cousin Jean-Baptiste Fuchs at rue Chapon in the Marais district of Paris. In 1857 Émile Puiforcat along with Jean-Baptiste Fuchs registered the company’s hallmark, composed as a diamond shape centered by a pocket knife in profile, flanked by the initials E and P (for Émile Puiforcat), In 1892 Laure Emilie Puiforcat granddaughter of the firm’s founder married Louis-Victor Tabouret (son of François-Louis Tabouret). Four years later in 1902 Louis-Victor assumed management of the firm and then in 1915 he changed his surname by decree to Puiforcat-Tabouret.  By the late nineteenth century Puiforcat had moved into the high end of the silver-smithing trade, gaining particular renown for creating pieces inspired by past historical masterpieces often from within the company's own collection.  For generations the House of Puiforcat has maintained it's fabulous tradition of creating masterpieces in sterling silver and gold plated sterling silver (vermeil) and has been silversmiths to the Kings and Queens of Europe as well as Presidents and Emperors around the world. Today the firm, currently owned by Hermes, still maintains it's ranking as one of the best silversmiths in the world.
