Cannes Table Fork (Sterling Silver) | Highlight image
Free from any superfluous ornamentation, this sterling silver cutlery features no other embellishment than the five fluted rings on their handles. A disciplined silhouette that some observers have compared to the Art Deco facade of the Martinez Hotel in Cannes, a city adored by Jean Puiforcat, a great lover of the coast. Designed in 1928, the Cannes collection had a special place in the heart of the silversmith-cum-designer: when he married Maria Estevez, he chose these knives and forks to grace the wedding tables.

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.
