The delicately facetted bands that surround the rounded Loya pieces are the sole ornamentation on this original Jean Puiforcat design. This type of simplicity is customary to modern silverwork, and Puiforcat has established itself as the unrivalled leader in this realm. Such purity also allows light to reflect off of the polished surfaces, and to bring out the contrasting accents of the precious wood on the handles. This collection is also known as Art Déco 1927.
The Puiforcat style reveals itself in the precision of its designs and the refinement of its technique, at work through the artistic hand of its silversmiths.
Thanks to the expertise of its craftsmen, Puiforcat is not only able to reproduce masterpieces from Louis-Victor Puiforcat’s silverwork collection, now preserved at the Louvre, and to draw inspiration from the sketches of Jean Puiforcat, master silversmith of the 1930s and leader of the Art Deco movement, but also to work with today’s designers to create contemporary pieces that will become tomorrow’s classics. Perfect mastery of these three stylistic repertoires, a coffee pot, teapot and covered sugar bowl.
