Jean-Baptiste-Denis Landry, orfèvre cuilleriste (a silver flatware specialist)

First mark:
LANDRY B + a man’s foot (un pied d’homme): registered 14 Oct 1826, working at 6 Cour Lamoingnon, with a similar small mark registered on 16 Jul 1827; both marks cancelled 20 Aug 1833.

Second Mark (the one shown here):
J.B. LANDRY + a man’s foot (un pied d’homme): registered 20 Aug 1833; working at 12 cour de Harlay, with similar small marks (initals JB + a foot) registered on 21 Jun 1844 and again on 20 Jan 1846 (by which time he had relocated to 71 quai de l’Horloge); all marks cancelled 10 Mar 1856.

It is to be noted that on 17 Mar 1856, one week after the cancellation of his marks, a Veuve [Widow] Landry registered a mark at 15 rue Vavin: GL + a St. Andrew’s cross below two pellets. She was registered as a specialist in religious articles.
