Literature

La Maison Aucoc was founded in 1821 by Casimir Aucoc, in Paris. Its production was composed of toiletry boxes and travel caskets. Later, Louis Aucoc (1850-1932), jeweller and goldsmith, developed Maison Aucoc's activity. His great skill as a goldsmith and refined aesthetic sensibility undoubtedly contributed to his success. His jewellery, carefully made with the finest of materials, kept directly in step with French fashion. The firm’s Art Nouveau pieces were particularly well regarded; they often feature exquisitely chased gold combined with enamelling and finely set diamonds. Aucoc is also remembered for his leadership within the jewellery industry and consistently served on the prize-giving and admissions panels at Paris’s International Exhibitions.
