About

Late 19th century oval sewing box decorated with crowned monogram. The case contains five gold and steel sewing utensils embellished with small flowers. Labeled on the inside: AUCOC A PARIS. Weight: 27.6 g, circa 1860 Dimension: W 4.5 in, D 2.4in, H .8in. Dimension: L 11.5cm, P 6cm, H 2cm. La Maison Aucoc was founded in 1821 by Casimir Aucoc, in Paris. Its production was composed of toiletry boxes and travel caskets. Later, Louis Aucoc (1850-1932), jeweler and goldsmith, developed Maison Aucoc's activity. His great skill as a goldsmith and refined aesthetic sensibility undoubtedly contributed to his success. His jewelry, carefully made with the finest of materials, kept directly in step with French fashion. The firm’s Art Nouveau pieces were particularly well regarded, they often feature exquisitely chased gold combined with enameling and finely set diamonds. Aucoc is also remembered for his leadership within the jewelry industry and consistently served on the prize-giving and admissions panels at Paris’s International Exhibitions.
