Help with identifying silversmith

Postby Silvestre » Fri Aug 28, 2020 8:36 am

Hi everyone,
I recently bought this french coffe pot and I can´t identify its maker. I see the letters A and C and a anchor but there's something else. Could someone help me?

Thanks in advance.

The marks is that of:

Etienne Antoine Courtellemont

Born: 19 Aug 1795 [23 fructidor an III], St. Saveur sur Ecole, Seine et Marne, son of Simon Spire Courtellemont & Marguerite Angelique LeBetz
Married: 3 Nov 1835, Paris, to Marie Anne Cecille, daughter of Jean Louis Cecille & Jeanne Dauger
Died: 10 Mar 1886, Paris

It was registered at 5 rue de Harlay on 11 Apr 1834, and cancelled on 8 Oct 1840; he was a maker of silver hollowware. As he lived over 40 years after the mark was cancelled and was only 45 at the time, I believe he must have gone in to some other trade, but I found no reference to what that might have been. He and his wife had three daughters.

See Arminjon I:00446 [Note: Arminjon gives his name as "Antoine Etienne", but both his birth and death certificate say "Etienne Antoine"]
