Direct from a private residence in Monaco, a stunning 19th century, Louis XVI covered sterling silver vegetable server by the world’s premier French silversmith “Puiforcat”, currently owned by Hermes with NO MONOGRAMS, circa early 1890s.  In the realm of luxury silversmithing, few names evoke as much reverence and admiration as Puiforcat. Renowned for its exquisite craftsmanship, timeless designs, and prestigious clientele, Puiforcat stands as a symbol of French elegance and refinement.

The saga of Puiforcat began in 1820 when Emile Puiforcat founded the eponymous silversmithing company in Paris. Emile's vision was not merely to craft objects of utility but to create works of art that would transcend time and captivate generations with their beauty and craftsmanship. From its inception, Puiforcat distinguished itself with its commitment to excellence, drawing inspiration from both classical aesthetics and contemporary trends.

Over the years, Puiforcat's dedication to superior quality and innovative design has been recognized with numerous prestigious awards and accolades.

Puiforcat's commitment to excellence has been celebrated through awards such as the "Meilleur Ouvrier de France" (Best Craftsman of France), a testament to its unrivaled mastery in the art of silversmithing.

Puiforcat's illustrious clientele includes members of royal families, dignitaries, and heads of state who have coveted its creations for their unparalleled beauty and craftsmanship. The company's association with royalty dates back to the 19th century when Puiforcat's exquisite silverware adorned the tables of European monarchs and aristocrats. This royal patronage not only elevated Puiforcat's status but also served as a testament to its enduring legacy and timeless appeal.

At the heart of Puiforcat's success lies its unwavering commitment to craftsmanship of the highest caliber. Each piece crafted by Puiforcat is a masterpiece in its own right, meticulously handcrafted by skilled artisans who uphold centuries-old traditions of silversmithing. From the initial design concept to the final finishing touches, every step in the production process is executed with precision and care, ensuring that each piece meets the exacting standards synonymous with the Puiforcat name.

In 1993, Puiforcat's legacy was further enriched when it became part of the esteemed Hermès Group, renowned for its iconic luxury goods and unwavering commitment to craftsmanship. This partnership brought together two pillars of French excellence, each renowned for its dedication to quality, innovation, and timeless elegance.
