Pure lines. Precise angles. The Art Deco style, a study in elegant precision, was incorporated into the Maison's vocabulary in the 1920s and 30s at the initiative of Jean Puiforcat, a member of the fourth generation of the family. An artist of his time and a visionary businessman, he applied this art of austerity to his pitchers, vases and tea services, inventing Art Deco silversmithing. An eminent figure of the age, he was also active in all the creative circles of the 1920s.

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.
