Louis XV Serveware, Ceramics, Silver and Glass

LOUIS XV STYLE

The style of 18th-century French furniture was guided by the court. When Louis XV, who reigned from 1715–74, focused royal life on the smaller salons of Versailles rather than its grand chambers, it transformed the aesthetics away from the imposing and angular furniture that characterized the style of Louis XIV. A broader focus on comfort and more delicate forms define antique Louis XV furniture, with nature-inspired carvings, wood inlays, curved cabriole legs, asymmetrical shapes and rounded oval seat backs. The furnishings changed throughout the king’s life, as he ascended to the throne as a child and then grew to establish his own tastes.

Pieces like the bergère, an upholstered armchair with a wide cushion that fit the flowing dresses in fashion at the time, reflected this more informal court. Introduced at the start of Louis XV’s reign, bergère chairs in this style were deeper and broader than other chairs of the period.

Louis XV tapestries and carpets tended to be floral and colorful, and design elements were borrowed from Asia. Dutch-born cabinetmaker Bernard van Risenburgh brought lacquer techniques influenced by Japan and China into his luxuriously made furniture. Along with its fine details, the furniture of the era also featured new innovations including mechanical devices. Jean François Oeben, a royal cabinetmaker, created such intricate pieces as a mechanical table for Madame de Pompadour, Louis XV’s mistress. It involved a sliding top and a writing surface that extended from its marquetry panels.

During the later years of Louis XV’s reign, there was a shift from the ostentatious rocaille style, part of the exuberantly decorative Rococo movement in Europe for which designers such as Nicolas Pineau and Juste-Aurèle Meissonier are known. The style under Louis XVI would return to boxier forms, but with a neoclassical touch inspired by the ancient world.

The Société Parisienne d'Orfèvrerie, a prominent French silversmith firm, has left an indelible mark on the world of decorative arts. Established in the heart of Paris during the 19th century, the firm quickly rose to prominence, becoming synonymous with exquisite craftsmanship, innovative design, and unparalleled quality in silverware. Founded in 1837 by master silversmith Jean-Baptiste-Claude Odiot, a visionary artisan with a passion for creating exceptional silver pieces; the firm's commitment to quality quickly attracted the attention of aristocrats, royalty, and the burgeoning bourgeoisie. Under the leadership of subsequent generations of the Odiot family, the firm continued to thrive, adapting to changing tastes and styles while maintaining its dedication to superior craftsmanship. Société Parisienne d'Orfèvrerie's list of accomplishments is as extensive as it is impressive. The firm's silverware adorned the tables of European royalty, including Napoleon III and Empress Eugénie, establishing its reputation as the preferred purveyor of luxury items. The intricate silver pieces produced by the firm were not merely functional objects but symbols of status, wealth, and refined taste. One of the firm's standout achievements was its participation in the Exposition Universelle of 1855 in Paris. The international exhibition provided a platform for Société Parisienne d'Orfèvrerie to showcase its finest creations to a global audience, earning accolades and further solidifying its status as a premier silversmith firm. The recognition of Société Parisienne d'Orfèvrerie's excellence extended beyond the acclaim of its clientele. The firm received numerous awards and honors for its contributions to the field of decorative arts. At the Exposition Universelle of 1867, Société Parisienne d'Orfèvrerie was awarded the prestigious Legion of Honor, a testament to its exceptional craftsmanship and artistic innovation. Subsequent international exhibitions, including the Exposition Universelle of 1878 and 1889, brought further accolades to the firm. The awards bestowed upon Société Parisienne d'Orfèvrerie underscored its global impact and the recognition of its silverware as exemplars of artistic and technical achievement. Each piece (except for the coffee spoons) in this amazing set bears the hallmark of Master French Silversmith "Societe Parisienne d'Orfevrerie" in addition to the French Government's "Head of the Minerva-1" hallmark.

Puiforcat (Hermes) - 169pc. French 950 Sterling Silver Flatware Set (Noailles)
Located in Wilmington, DE
Direct from Paris, A Superb 169pc. 19th Century 950 Sterling Silver Flatware Set with 19 Serving Pieces (Noailles Pattern) by the World's Premier French Silversmith "Puiforcat" Currently Owned by Hermes, circa early 1900s. The history of French silver-smithing is rich and diverse, with numerous artisans and firms that have contributed to its enduring legacy. Among these, Puiforcat stands as a testament to the craftsmanship and artistry that has defined this industry for generations. Established in the early 19th century, Puiforcat has consistently represented the pinnacle of French silverwork. The Puiforcat legacy began in 1820, when Emile Puiforcat founded his eponymous silversmith workshop in Paris. Emile was inspired by the rich heritage of French craftsmanship and sought to revive the art of silver-smithing, which had faced decline during the tumultuous period of the French Revolution. Puiforcat was instrumental in reviving and elevating the art, offering not only functional silverware but also beautifully designed and meticulously crafted pieces that were celebrated for their aesthetic and utilitarian value. Puiforcat quickly established a reputation for artistic innovation. Emile Puiforcat's meticulous attention to detail and his commitment to excellence pushed the boundaries of what could be achieved with silver. He introduced innovative designs that blended classicism with modernity, which appealed to the evolving tastes of the 19th-century clientele. Puiforcat's quality and artistry soon attracted the attention of the French aristocracy. The company received royal commissions from the court of King Louis-Philippe, cementing its status as a premier silversmith. At the Exposition Universelle held in Paris in 1889, Puiforcat was awarded a gold medal for its outstanding silver creations. This recognition affirmed the company's place at the forefront of French silver-smithing. In 1993, the house of Puiforcat became a part of the Hermès Group, a move that further elevated its status in the world of luxury craftsmanship. Hermès, renowned for its commitment to artisanship and fine materials, was a natural fit for Puiforcat. Under the ownership of Hermès, Puiforcat has continued to thrive and innovate, maintaining its reputation as a premier silversmithing brand. In recognition of the exceptional collaboration between Puiforcat and Hermès, the brand received the Grand Prix de la Création de la Ville de Paris in 1994. This award celebrated the excellence in design and craftsmanship that the union of these two iconic brands had brought forth. This amazing 169pc. serving set in 950 sterling silver is a stunning example of the outstanding craftsmanship of the firm. The set includes the following (all weights and measures approximate: 6 Sterling Silver Dinner Knives...

The rich history of French silversmithing boasts many illustrious names, but few have left as indelible a mark as the renowned Lapparra family. For over a thousand years, this lineage of skilled artisans has crafted exquisite silverware that transcends mere utility, evolving into a symbol of luxury, artistry, and French cultural heritage. The story of the Lapparra family's silversmithing prowess begins in the early 10th century. By the 12th century, the Lapparra name had become synonymous with craftsmanship, and their workshops produced intricate chalices, candlesticks, and reliquaries for churches across France. The 19th century witnessed the rise of Napoleon Bonaparte and the consolidation of his empire. The Lapparra silversmiths adapted to the imperial tastes, crafting magnificent pieces that showcased the grandeur of the First French Empire, like this amazing 328-piece flatware set. In addition, elaborate tea and coffee sets, dinnerware, and ornate presentation pieces were created for the imperial court, earning the family the coveted title of "Imperial Silversmiths." The Lapparra family's creations graced the tables of Napoleon's lavish banquets and adorned the Palais des Tuileries. Their innovative techniques, set new standards in silversmithing. Even after Napoleon's fall, the Lapparra legacy endured, as they continued to cater to the elite of Europe, from Russian tsars to British nobility. The Lapparra family's enduring legacy extends far beyond their magnificent silverware. Their contributions to the world of silversmithing have left an indelible mark on French culture and the global art community. Their ability to evolve with the times while preserving their commitment to quality and craftsmanship has made them a symbol of artistic excellence. The Lapparra name is not only associated with opulence and luxury but also with innovation and artistic expression. Their influence can be seen in the work of countless contemporary silversmiths who draw inspiration from their rich history. The Lapparra family's legacy continues into the 21st century, as the family's artisans continue to produce exquisite silverware, blending traditional craftsmanship with modern sensibilities. With a renewed focus on custom creations and limited-edition series, they cater to collectors, museums, and connoisseurs worldwide.

French Louis XV Carved Pine 18 Wine Bottles "Cave a Vin" Display Cabinet
Located in Dallas, TX
This narrow, antique wine storage cabinet was crafted in western France using old timber. Built of pine wood, the tall and thin cabinet sits on four small scroll feet under a scalloped apron. The piece features six shelves embellished with decorative carvings and each row holds three bottles, for a total of 18. The wine storage is decorated with the words “Petrus Cave” printed on the front. The cabinet is in excellent condition commensurate with age and use, and adorns a rich walnut patina; it would make a useful addition to a kitchen or wine cellar without taking up too much room. Château Pétrus is a Bordeaux, France, wine estate located in the Pomerol appellation near its eastern border to Saint-Émilion. A small estate of just 11.4 hectares (28 acres), it produces a red wine entirely from Merlot grapes (since the end of 2010), and produces no second wine. Although the wines of Pomerol have never been classified, Pétrus is widely regarded as the outstanding wine of the appellation. Pétrus leads a duo of Pomerol estates in extreme prices, along with Le Pin, that rank consistently among the world's most expensive wines. Indeed, a 750ml bottle of Pétrus wine...
