Few of the busy metal stamping factories, clustered around the Marais district in Paris, survived the First World War. The houses of Gruson, Prat and Janvier (who worked closely with the master jeweller Lalique) are no more. The skills that worked out the elegant, feminine and intricate lines, which are now called “art nouveau”, perished with the French poilus (soldiers) and disappeared with Verdun. Many of the heavy tools however, cut by hand into the steel of that time, are still in existence; and if you know where to look, and are prepared to subsidise the work, jewellery, brooches and ear-rings from this priceless resource, using silver or brass can still be made. Most of our jewellery is stamped in these old dies, first in brass and finished and silver-plated in Forest Row. So it follows that our art nouveau jewellery range does not represent replicas of old pieces. These are no more than the same pieces in brand-new condition.
