    * Maison Cardeilhac (Paris 1804-1951)
    Established in 1804 by Antoine-Vital Cardeilhac and specializing in cutlery and flatware, the house was managed from 1851 to 1904 by his son Armand-Edouard Cardeilhac. From 1885, his son, Ernest Cardeilhac (1851-1904), after an apprenticeship with the goldsmith Harleux, took over management. It is with this that the production of gold and silver pieces begins. He organized his workshops with a view to this production and bought the assets of Maison Lebon. Assisted by three artists: the designer Lucien Bonvallet, the sculptor Aiguier and the engraver Viat, he presented his first work in 1889 at the Universal Exhibition and won a silver medal. At the Universal Exhibition of 1900, he achieved great success with pieces executed according to the drawings of Lucien Bonvallet, where the ornamentation of plant-inspired and sober inspiration is brought to life by the association of materials such as wood with metal. , ivory and patinas. In 1904, his two sons, Jacques and Pierre, succeeded him. The company was taken over by Christofle in 1951.
