The gold-mounted emerald stem surmounted by a figure in the form of a 18th century marchand ambulant, carrying a large pearl on his back. Retailed by J. Mandereau / Maison Molgatini, Orléans, circa 1890 Marked in original box - 'Maison Molgatini / J. Mandereau / 75, rue Royale / Orleans’ Orléans was always well-off, capital of the duchy which provided an immense fortune to the Orleans family, cousins of the Bourbon kings. During the 19th century, Orléans was a typical rich provincial town, composed of a bourgeoisie enriched thanks to the arrival of the train line from Paris. It was an important military base because of its strategic geographical position. Its nobility was still wealthy and influential, strongly supporting the Orléans family who had just acceded to the throne. Jules Mandereau and Maison Molgatini were both located in the rue Royale. Mandereau was recorded as a bijoutier during the burglary of his shop in 1896 (Journal du Loiret, 30 December 1896) ; while a photography of Maison Molgatini, dated 1908, showed that they were retailers in silver, jewellery and clocks.
