Risler & Carre

In 1897, André Risler and his partner Georges Carré opened their shop at the fashionable Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris. The company offered the finest silverware and exclusive jewellery. Almost instantly the brand gained a strong reputation amongst the Parisienne elite.

In just three years, Risler & Carré asserted themselves brilliantly in the luxury market and won a gold medal at the Paris World Exhibition in 1900, with many others to come at following world exhibitions.

One of the most memorable events was the exclusive participation in the Universal Exhibition in Saint Louis, USA in 1904. Only six French silversmiths were honoured to exhibit at that time. This brought Risler & Carré worldwide fame.

The company crafted splendid items – not only in the Louis XVI style, but also in the modern Art Nouveau style. André Risler designed most of the pieces Risler & Carré produced. For his merits, he was named a chevalier of the Légion d’honneur by the French government in 1906 at the age of 43.

Unfortunately, the unexpected death of the master led to the closure of “Maison Risler et Carré” in 1912.
