Eugène Feuillâtre (1870-1916) began his short career as a student of Etienne Tourrette in 1883. Although considered a gifted goldsmith and sculptor, his most exceptional talent lay in such enamel work as he learnt from his early master. Feuillâtre was head of René Lalique's enamelling workshop from 1890 to 1897 and he was considered one of the best craftsmen in this field at the time. In 1898, he began working on his own, and his creations were displayed with great success at the Salon de la Société des Artistes Français until 1914 and at the Salon de la Société des Artistes Décorateurs. In 1899, he joined the Belgian association 'La Libre Esthétique' as well as acting as a member of the jury alongside Lalique and Fouquet for an exhibition at the New Gallery in London. The year 1900 brought him a gold medal at the Paris World Exhibition.
