Bayonne Butter Spreader | Highlight image
1924, the Basque coast was booming with tourism and rivaling the elegance of Art déco architecture. Jean Puiforcat lived in St. Jean de Luz and interpreted the geometric rigor and sober ornamentation of such vacation resorts. The Bayonne sterling silver cutlery, with its pure, modern straight lines, is ribbed with three fine sculptural grooves echoing the three prongs on the fork. A timeless model with neo-Basque accents.

Jean Puiforcat

Jean Puiforcat

Jean Elysée Puiforcat (pronounced pwee-for-KAH) (1897-1945) was a French silversmith, sculptor and designer. Puiforcat's silver work had smooth surfaces and was based on the geometric series. He started designing tableware and by 1934 he also had designed liturgical silver. In 1941, he moved to Mexico and started exhibiting in the United States. Puiforcat's name was renowned for the elegant, often mathematical simplicity of his geometric forms and the unexpected combination of flawless metalwork with brilliantly polished hardstones, semiprecious stones, or glass.
