Lot Essay

Jules Wiese was born in Berlin in 1818 and christened Julius. He became a pupil of Johann Georg Hossaeur, the Berlin court goldsmith, in 1834. Wiese moved to Paris in 1839 and began his association with the Parisian jeweller François-Désiré Froment-Meurice. Eventually establishing an independent workshop in 1858 at 48 rue de L'Arbre Sec, Wiese was awarded a gold medal at the 'London World Exhibition' in 1862 for his jewellery in the Renaissance style.
