Eugène Ferdinand Rion. He was born in Paris on 19 Dec 1811, the son of silversmith Sixte-Simon Rion (ca. 1781-1841) and his wife Adelaide Josephine Bourg. He married, on 14 Oct 1840, at the Church of St.Germain l’Auxerrois in Paris, Clarisse Champeau (1820-1885), and evidently left the trade in 1862. He died on 8 May 1883 in Bourg-la-Reine, Hauts-de-Seine.

DEITZ AARON LEZARE

Paris


ELOPEMENT SEQUEL

At the Thames Police-court yesterday Deitz Aaron Lezare, a watchmaker, of Rue de Blanre Monceaux, Paris, was charged on remand with receiving about £25, belonging to Joseph Keir, a furrier, of Rue Palmelles, Paris. The money was said to have been stolen by Suzanne Keir (aged fourteen), prosecutor's daughter, who afterward went to Lezare and told him what she had done. The two came to London, where they bought tickets for Toronto, but were arrested before starting for Liverpool. Yesterday the magistrate discharged the girl, who went away in the care of her father. Mr. Chester Jones yesterday said there was not sufficient evidence to show the money had been stolen without the attendance of the girl. If the father felt aggrieved he could proceed by extradition. Prisoner would be discharged.

JEAN LOUIS GALLIOT

Jean Louis Galliot of Lyon is the maker; the is the last of his three marks, entered around 1818.

Jean Louis Galliot

Born: 31 Oct 1782, Villebois, Ain, son of Jean Galliot & Marie Pitat
Married 1st: ca. 1812, to Louise Duverdy (1796-1815)
Married 2nd: 10 Jul 1827, to Rose Francoise Raton (b.1798)

I cannot find any record of his death in Lyon or his home town of Villebois, though the death record of his only son - Jean Baptiste Etienne Galliot (1813-1849) – indicates that Jean Louis was still alive at that time.

As for the antelope head, the short answer is that no one knows. There are other similar marks on Lyon silver of the period, including a rampant lion, a displayed eagle (which appears on some of Galliot’s output), and a lion’s head in a pelleted surround. Chalabi & Jaze-Charvolin offer three hypotheses for these marks: first, that they were some sort of unofficial pre-assay marks analogous to the Parisian Greek woman’s and boar’s heads (see: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=45351); second, that they were the personal marks of individual assayers, and third, that they were some sort of retailer’s or consortium marks.

None of these theories are without their difficulties. Unlike the Greek woman’s and boar’s heads, the Lyon marks appear to have been used on both silver standards and on pieces that do not have multiple components – this plate being a perfect example. The assayer mark theory appears to be contradicted by comparing the working dates of makers to that of assayers which show the same mark on works of makers that could not have been assayed by the same assayer. The retailer/consortium mark seems the most plausible to me, but the problem there is that there is no evidence or precedent to support the theory.

D.G. GARREAU

62 rue du Temple, Paris

Your sugar basket was made in Paris between 1817-1838 as seen by the silver standard mark of a Minerva head facing left in a circular reserve for 950 standard silver. All parts of the object - base, mounts, lid - should be marked.
The maker was D.G. Garreau, working in Paris at 62, rue du Temple. He specialized in tableware, especially oil cruets. He registered his mark in 1817. No end date is given, but he was mentioned in the Almanach Azur until 1822.
Garreau was the successor of Ambroise Mignerot, who had the same specialty, and also worked at 62 rue du Temple at the end of his career. His working dates were 1800-1818.
The symbol for both makers is a small boat or gondola (une nacelle) with two men inside above the maker’s initials with a pellet below.
Other makers at the 62 rue du Temple address used this symbol through the years: Étienne-Auguste Courtois (1834-1847) and Alphonse Debain (1847-1851). I don’t know what the business connection between these makers was.

See Arminjon, v. I, no. 00877, p. 119; no. 00326, p.73; no. 00088, p. 53; v. II, no. 1159, p. 122.



Member blakstone wrote:

These companies were all successors, continuing until 1895 and all using the same device of "une nacelle". Garreau sold the business in 1834 to Etienne Courtois and retired to Val-de-Marne. Courtois' successor in 1847, Alphonse-François Debain, was Garreau's nephew. (What Courtois' relation, if any, to either man I have not been able to determine.)

Ambroise Mignerot, 1800-1817, 62 rue du Temple
Denis Jean Andres Garreau, 1817-1834, 62 rue du Temple
Etienne Auguste Courtois, 1834-1847, 62 rue du Temple
Alphonse-Francois Debain, 1847-1864, 62 rue du Temple; 140 rue du Temple
Debain & Flamant, 1864-1880, 40 rue du Temple
Flamant & Fils, 1880-1891, 140 rue du Temple
Vve. Flamant & Champenois, 1891-1894, 140 rue du Temple
Leon Champenois, 1894-1895, 140 rue du Temple

Ambroise Mignerot
Born: ca. 1759
Married: Angelique Genevieve Cacheleu (divorced)
Died: 12 Sep 1820, Paris

Denis Jean Andres Garreau
Born: 30 Nov 1781, Moleme, Cote d’Or, son of Jean-Baptiste Garreau & Catherine Lestrat
Married: Marie Catherine Feuillet
Died: 13 Sep 1872, Fontenay-sous-Bois, Val-de-Marne

Etienne Auguste Courtois
Born: ca. 1794, son of Jean-Jacques Marie Courtois & Angelique Thiercellin
Married: 3 Feb 1853, to Adele Francine Cesard
Died: 19 Nov 1861, Paris

Alphonse-Francois Debain
Born: 25 Jan 1816, Paris, son of Francois Theodore Debain & Marie Anne Garreau
Married: 26 Apr 1868, to Marie Louise Fiensterval
Died: 30 Aug 1886, Paris

Louis-Frederic Flamant
Born: 18 Sep 1824, Jouarre, Seine-et-Marne
Married: Aimee Clemence Cocu
Died: 12 Apr 1898, Paris

Louis Victor Flamant
Born: 20 Jan 1855, Paris, son of Louis Frederic Flamant & Aimee Clemence Cocu
Married: 6 Jun 1878, Montevrain, Seine-et-Marne, to Anna Claire Champenois (1855-aft. 1914; Vve. Flamant)
Died: 27 Mar 1891, Paris

Leon Emile Champenois
Born: 4 May 1862, Paris, s.o. Alphonse Charles Champenois & Rosine Seguin
Married: 28 Feb 1891, Paris, to Henriette Marie Robert (b. 1869), d.o. Marie Benjamin Henri Robert & Marie Louise Henriette Soufflot
Died: 19 Mar 1904, Nohant-Vic, Indre



It is worth noting that another Alphonse Debain - Alphonse-Edouard Debain (1851-1916), nephew of Alphonse-Francois Debain - was also a prominent silver maker. He was the successor to Philippe Bertheier (1813-1882) and was succeeded by his son, Edouard Debain (1888-1968). They all used the symbol of a woodcock (later a phoenix).

The company, as Leon Champenois, was assumed by Charles Boulanger & Cie, on 5 Apr 1899.
