  • Odiot - Antique French 950 Sterling Silver Candy Serving Dish, 1880s
    By Odiot
    Located in Wilmington, DE
    Direct from a Chateaux in the South of France, A Magnificent 19th Century 950 Sterling Silver Candy "bonbon" Dish by the World's Premier French Silversmith Jean-Baptiste Odiot, An Ultra Luxurious Addition to any Stately Home, Absolutely Magnificent, - circa late 1800s. Jean-Baptiste Odiot stands as one of the most distinguished silversmiths in French history, renowned for his exceptional craftsmanship and significant contributions to the art of silver-smithing. His workshop not only provided services to the aristocracy of Europe but also greatly influenced the styles and standards of silverware in the 19th century. Born in Paris, Jean-Baptiste Odiot was destined to become a central figure in French decorative arts. After apprenticing under his grandfather, Jean-Baptiste Gaspard Odiot, he took over the family business in the late 18th century. His rise coincided with a turbulent period in French history, yet he managed to establish a flourishing enterprise. Odiot's workshop quickly became one of the most prestigious in Paris, attracting a clientele that included nobility and later, during the Napoleonic era, the imperial family itself. His ability to blend artistic excellence with innovative techniques marked a new era in silver-smithing. Odiot was known for his mastery of high-relief repoussé, chasing, and gilding, which allowed him to create pieces of remarkable detail and opulence. His work often featured motifs inspired by classical antiquity, aligning with the Empire style popularized during Napoleon's reign. His innovative approach to silver-smithing included the adoption of new techniques that enhanced the efficiency and aesthetic appeal of his products. His introduction of a mechanical rolling process allowed for more precise manipulation of silver, resulting in finer and more consistent products. Odiot's craftsmanship was recognized at several important exhibitions. His works were showcased at the Exposition des produits de l'industrie française, where he consistently won medals, including gold medals in 1806 and 1823. These accolades not only affirmed his mastery but also solidified his reputation across Europe. His contributions to the field were also recognized by his election to the Légion d’Honneur in 1825, an honor that acknowledged both his artistic talent and his impact on the French industry. Odiot's most significant patron was Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, who commissioned numerous pieces, including the spectacular cradle for the King of Rome, Napoleon’s son...
