Tétard, along with Puiforcat and Christofle, was one of the leading makers of French Art Deco silver. With a long history of exceptional silversmithing which includes gold medals at 19th century world fairs, Maison Tétard began making silver in the style moderne during the 1920’s under the design leadership of Valéry Bizouard. In 1930, Bizouard was joined by Jean Tétard. Together, they are responsible for one of the finest bodies of French Art Deco designs.
This set dates to c.1920 / 1930 and remain in excellent condition, minor wear commensurate with age. Each cup measures 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" x 3/4"; the case measures 6 7/8" x 6 7/8" x 1 1/2".
