Gustave Odiot, who succeeded his father Charles-Nicolas in 1865, received the largest order ever placed with the House of Odiot - 3,000 pieces of solid gold flatware for Saïd Pacha, the Viceroy of Egypt, and was purveyor by appointment to the court of His Imperial Majesty the Tsar.
He was the last member of the Odiot family to direct the company. Founded in 1690, the House of Odiot first gained notoriety during the reign of Louis XV with Jean-Baptiste Gaspard Odiot, one of the finest silversmiths of his time.Today, the House of Odiot is proud of its exceptional heritage, marked by encounters with great historical figures, and can draw on an unparalleled collection of patterns, moulds and drawings, constituted from the prestigious orders taken over the centuries. Professionally cleaned by our Parisian silversmith, this magnificent set is in excellent condition with just light signs of use to note, and the vermeil is very well preserved.
