The house Cardeilhac was founded by Antoine-Vital Cardeilhac in 1804. From 1851 until 1885, his son Armand-Edouard ran the company and in 1885 his grandson, Ernest Cardeilhac became head of the company. It was with Ernest Cardeilhac that gold and silversmithing was introduced to the firm.
Amélie, Armand-Edouard’s widow, ran the company’s division for the manufacturing of platework from 1904 until 1913 at 24 place Vendôme, a prestigious address renowned for luxury stores to this very day, and from 1904 until 1920 at 91 rue de Rivoli for silversmithing, almost across the street from the prestigious Louvre Museum. Finally in 1920 both sons of Ernest Cardeilhac, Jacques and Pierre, took over the business until 1951, when the company merged with prestigious maker Christofle.
