Tirbour Open Salt

Postby dragonflywink » Mon Mar 24, 2008 2:59 pm

This is one of my Mom's swan salts, bears the 1st standard Minerva and a maker's mark for Tirbour, have found the "CT" Charles Tirbour marks but have had no luck tracking this one down. Anyone know the date range for this mark? Thanks!

Hi Cheryl.
All I could find was a drawing of your mark. No dates were given.

Thanks, Pat! Suspected the symbol might be their little suitcase, its illustration in that book seems to reinforce my gut feeling that the piece dates to the early 20th century.

Hi Pat and Cheryl,

Can confirm it is work by Charles TIRBOUR who started in 1897 and the company disappeared in 1951. his Workshop was located 23 rue Chapon in Paris.

Best Regards
Myriam
