The Makers Mark is for ‘Maîtres Orfèvres’ BOIN-TABURET .
Boin-Taburet was created by the joining in 1860 of two ‘Maître Orfèvre’: Emile TABURET and his son in law, Georges BOIN who prior to this had already attained quite a fame as a Antique Dealer. The House of Boin Taburet acquired a large following and specialized in ‘Pieces De Table” or larger decorating pieces for the table.
They took part with much success in the 1889 ‘Exposition Universelle’ in Paris.
