Sale to private individuals and professionals

The company, founded in 1954, is located in Limoges, one of the birthplaces of enamel painted on copper. The workshop is specialised in making miniature enamels.

The products are made using traditional processes: preparation of copper plates, applying the undercoat, applying the layer of enamel, applying colours and baking. All parts are destined to be mounted on jewellery supports.  This workshop uses some rare techniques: the use of fine silver and fine gold leaf (foil), cut to give luminosity to transparent enamel. "Limoges White” or grisaille modelling is done with a fine brush and a needle to create shadows and light. Finishing consists of applying decorative elements cut out of a fin gold plate. Miniatures are made on supports measuring from 14x10 mm to 45x35 mm.  Miniatures are made to order and delivered assembled or not assembled. They are mainly used by jewellers.
