Lot Essay

The Odiot firm, which can trace its origins back to 1690, came to its greatest glory under the leadership of Jean-Baptiste-Claude Odiot, the grandson of the founder, Jean-Baptiste-Gaspard Odiot. Born in 1763 and becoming a master in 1785, Odiot succeeded his father in the business, steadily building the firm's reputation, coming to particular notice following the Exposition de l'industrie held in Paris in 1802. The stamp on the present lot was used by the Odiot firm between the years 1819 and 1838.
