Louis Charles Cléry

Born: 23 Aug 1796 [6 fructidor an IV], Meudon, Seine-et-Oise [now Hauts-de-Seine], son of Pierre Martin Claude Cléry, merchant grocer & Marie Bellier
Married: 9 Feb 1828, Paris, to Angelique Antonie Hémard, daughter of François Nicolas Hémard & Anne Farot. Died: 9 Jul 1865, Paris, 9th arrondissement

Arminjon gives the registration date of this mark as 13 Jul 1829, with no cancellation date. She also gives his name as Cléry-Hémard - a contraction with his wife's name and thus the initials "CH" - but he is always listed in Paris directories as L. Clery. He was primarily a cutler, and by the 1850s he had apparently specialized in manufacturing leather strops for razors.

Vincent Paul Massat

Born: 21 Mar 1835, Paris, 4th arr.
Married: 1 Feb 1864, Paris, 16th arr., to Louise Aimée Bonnesoeur
Died: 1 Aug 1892, Paris, 16th arr.

He and his brother Jean Eugène Massat (1829-1878) succeeded their father, Jean-Baptiste Massat (1802-1881), after his retirement in 1859 as Massat Frères, and Paul (as he was called) continued the business alone after his brother's death. They all used the device of a lyre with two points, Paul using "P. Massat"; the mark was registered on 26 Feb 1877 and cancelled on 11 Jan 1885. He was succeeded by his brother-in-law Edmond Alfred Bonnesoeur.

The maker of your plate was Richard-Emile Agu, mark a horse head between two dials (une tête de cheval entre deux molettes). Agu, a hollowware maker, worked in Paris on rue St-Honoré, first registering a mark in 1805-1806. In 1813 he was on the Île St-Louis, terrain des Capucins. No end date is given. Your plate can be dated with some exactitude from between 1805, when Agu first registered, and 1809, the end of the period shown by the standing cock in an octagonal reserve. It appears to have been an under plate for a tureen or other vessel, with decoration in the Empire style.

See Arminjon, v I, no. 03142, p. 308.

He had at least two sons, Amand François Agu (b. ca. 1813) and Alexandre Henri Agu, (b. 12 Jul 1817). He does not appear in the Paris Almanac as a silversmith after 1813, and his profession on the 1817 record of Alexandre's birth is as an employee, though in what industry it is not stated. His death records lists him as a "rentier", i.e., with a private income, so he presumably was well enough off to retire at some point.

PIERRE JÉRÔME LETELLIER

Orléans


An example of the work and mark of Pierre Jérôme Letellier:

Your spoon was made 1798-1809 of 950 standard silver in the French provinces, as shown by the standing cock facing left in an octagonal reserve with the number 1 underneath the tail. The guarantee mark gives the number of the province. I read 50 for Orléans.


Member blakstone wrote:

This mark is not shown in the section of 19th century Orléans makers by Stéphanie Saulnier in 'Orfèvres d’Orléans' (Paris: Somogy, 2003). However, the original copper registry plate of Orléans makers does not appear to have survived, and the photographic marks illustrated there are identified mostly by deduction.

That said, Saulnier does list a maker, Jérôme Letellier at 29 rue de la Faverie and later 15 coin Maugas, listed from 1796 to 1825 in Orléans almanacs and other references, noting that he married "a Boulaire".

Checking the Orléans état civil, I found the following, and I have no doubt that he is your man:

Pierre Jérôme Letellier, silversmith

Born: ca. 1766, Compiegne, Oise, son of Robert Jacques Letellier & Marie Catherine Boulanger
Married: 19 Feb 1794, Orléans, Loiret, to Marie Magdeleine Bohaire/Beauhaire (b. Artenay, Loiret ca. 1770) daughter of Jacques Bohaire & Magdeleine Germani

There were four children of the couple born in Orléans from 1795 to 1802. One of these – daughter Modeste – died in 1823, and I found one more almanac listing for Letellier in 1827. Thereafter the entire family drops from the record in Orléans. Letellier would have been 61 in 1827, a suitable age for him to retire and move to the country.

LOUIS-MICHEL CROUVAZIER

25 rue St-Martin, Paris


An example of the mark of Louis-Michel Crouvezier:

Member JayT wrote:

You have found a fragment of a pair of eyeglasses, specifically an arm or branch of the spectacles as shown by the location of the marks. The rust could be from the hinge that attached the arm to the body of the glasses.
There are 2 marks: a guarantee for smalls of a hare head facing right, in use from 1819-1838, and a maker’s mark in a lozenge-shaped reserve.
The maker was Louis-Michel Crouvezier, eyeglass maker, working in Paris at 25 rue St-Martin. His mark was initials L.M.C. with a lorgnette (un binocle) as the symbol.
Crouvezier registered his mark 4 times: 1812-13, 1815-1816, 1817, and 22 September 1835. His mark was erased 24 February 1853. Your object was made 1819-1838, as shown by the hare head mark.
Crouvezier had a mark for silver plate, the initials LC in a square reserve, the same symbol, and the word doublé for plated.
He also traded as Crouvezier Frères (brothers) according to a trade journal, Almanach Azur.


See Arminjon v. I, no. 2283, p. 236 and no. 2467, p.252

Crouvezier had successors, although it is unclear what relation they had to him-sons, brothers, nephews? All used the same symbol.
1-Joseph Crouvezier, listed as an eyeglass maker at 301 rue St-Martin, registered 24 February 1853, the same date that Louis-Michel’s mark was erased. Joseph’s mark was erased 12 May 1868.
2-Louis Crouvezier also listed as an eyeglass maker at 119 boulevard Sébastopol, registered 13 May 1868, erased 18 May 1875, likely the successor of Joseph.
3-Crouvezier & Thuilleur listed as jewellers 48 rue aux Ours, registered 1875, with no end date given.

See Arminjon, v. II, no. 2381, p. 224; no. 2856, p. 264; no. 1102, p. 117.

Louis Michel Crouvezier

Married: 10 Feb 1817, Paris, to Catherine Madeleine Victoire Fouché
Died: 27 Aug 1848, Belleville, Paris

He traded under Crouvezier Frères with his brother, Claude Crouvezier (b. 1786). He was succeeded by his sons Joseph Crouvezier (b. 1809) and then Louis Crouvezier (1815-1870). Louis was succeeded by his widow Catherine Richard (b. 1831) in partnership with Christophe Thuilleur (1811-1891), another spectacle maker from Verdun (who evidently was already working with Louis Crouvezier, on whose death registration he appears as a declarant).

JEAN-CHARLES CAHIER

Quai des Orfèvres, Paris


An example of the work and mark of Jean-Charles Cahier:

Member blakstone wrote:

Although worn, this mark is recognizable as that of the important silversmith Jean-Charles Cahier. The mark is described (although not illustrated) in Arminjon 1798-1838, mark 1671: J.C.C. underneath the Hebrew letters for “Jehovah”. (The horizontal line above the Latin letters is the giveaway.) If you do an internet search for Jean Charles Cahier, you will find many references to him; see here, for instance: A Treasury of Silverware of Jean Charles Cahier, Goldsmith to the King. (An internet search will also reveal images of the complete mark, but as most of these are commercial, I can't post them here.)

Jean Charles Cahier

Born: ca. 1772, Soissons, Aisne, son of Edme Cahier & Marie Peron
Married: 24 Nov 1802, to Adelaïde Gabrielle Louis Rallot
Died: 17 Oct 1857, Marseille, Bouches-du-Rhône

Cahier was trained in the workshop of the famous Martin-Guillaume Biennais, which he took over in 1821 after Biennais’ retirement. Cahier was appointed silversmith to both Restauration monarchs, Louis XVIII and Charles X. One record states that he was bankrupted in in 1828, but he clearly continued to operate until around 1849, when his workshop was assumed by Rénaud-Placide Poussielgue-Rusant.

Very nice find! Cahier is among the top tier of 19th century French makers.

This is the mark of Albert Joseph Ernest Callé (17 Oct 1853 – after 1926) and his son, André Callé (12 Apr 1884-24 Oct 1949) of Amiens, Somme. They were manufacturers of high-quality flatware from around 1882 to at least 1957. I was not able to find a death record for the elder Callé, but it was after 1926, when he and his son are both still listed in the Amiens census at their long-time address of 7 rue Sire Firmin Leroux.
