Puiforcat was formed in 1820 by Émile Puiforcat. The company was notable for its silver cutlery and flatware with formal designs adjusting forms to match the function. The upcoming Auctions at Showplace event presents a set of Puiforcat French sterling silver cutlery. The monogrammed 150-piece set was commissioned for the Venezuelan President, Guzman Blanco. The cutlery set features clean lines and simplistic patterns. Camusso Peruvian silver chargers with a rising-falling design are also featured.
Another highlight is a 14-karat yellow gold pocket watch by Elgin National Watch Company. The company was notable for its affordable and high-quality watches. The use of machine-made elements in these timepieces facilitated quick assembly and replacement. The available dual dial timepiece has a yellow gold fob chain and a gold spring clip. Also showcased is an oil painting, The Judgement of Paris, by Dutch Golden Age artist Daniel Vertangen. The artwork features “a scene of Paris selecting Aphrodite as the golden apple recipient over Hera and Athena.” Vertangen was famous for his works depicting historical legends in the Baroque style. Also offered are Lalique glassware, Victorian jewelry, porcelain ware, and rugs.
