Edmond Tétard took over the business of the renowned master silversmith Émile Hugo in 1880 and registered his mark in the August of that year giving the workshop address as 4 rue Béranger, north of the Marais in central Paris. He was a talented craftsman and his work soon came to the attention of both clients and his contemporaries. The firm specialized in creating beautiful sets of flatware and other table ware such as coffee and tea sets, candelabra plus decorative trays and urns. All the pieces featured elegant proportions and were finely wrought, many embellished with decorative details and hand engraving. He exhibited at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1889 where he was awarded a gold medal for his outstanding designs and fine quality silverware, much of which was influenced by Rococo style. Têtard’s pieces were highly sought after by a discerning clientele and he became a favorite of the French aristocracy. After Tétard’s death the firm passed to his three sons Henri, Jacques and Georges. It was renamed Tétard Frères and the brothers retired their father’s maker’s mark and registered their own in February 1903. The firm went on to become one of the leading silversmiths of the early 20th century and their pieces were widely admired. This amazing set of candelabra is a stunning example of the fine workmanship and quality for which the firm was internationally acclaimed.
