MAISON BOIN-TABURET (EST. 1873)
The firm of Boin-Taburet was established in 1873 by the silversmith George Boin and his father-in-law, the jewelry manufacturer, Emile Taburet. This maker is credited with the revival in the 1880s of Louis XV-style silver, and and won a Gold Medal at the Paris 1889 Exposition Universelle for its monumental historicist work. Boin-Taburet created objects in the Art Deco period that demonstrate an inventive mastery of more modern forms, while maintaining the firm's reputation for superlative execution.
