Maison Vever Founded in 1821. 1821 1982 Distinguished French jewelry house, Maison Vever passed through several generations of the Vever family.Like its French contemporary Templier , it produced a singular individual whose work helped propel the company name to a special place in jewelry history. Henri Vever (18541942) was one of the preeminent European jewelers of the early 20th century. Ernest was a skilled jeweler and designer who studied with his father and other German and Austrian manufacturers. He ran the firm until 1870. In 1871, Ernest moved from his native Metz to Paris because of the political situation that developed after France lost to Germany in the Franco-Prussian War. In Paris, he became owner of the famous jewelry firm, Beaugrand, located at 19, Rue de la Paix. For the next ten years, this company produced striking jewelry, mostly in the Art-Nouveau & ancient revival style, while Ernest also served on various trade commissions. During these years, Ernest began to train his sons, Paul and Henri to take over the firm. Henri, in particular, furthered his design education by attending LEcole de Arts Décoratifs and Ecole Nationale de Beaux-Arts , studying drawing, modeling, and ornamental design. 1- 1876 , Maison Vever registered their 1 st Hallmark which was and is stamped on this piece E and a V separated by an anchor in a chevron. 2- After 1912 there 2nd Hallmark was Vever with a star on top and bottom within a Diamond losenge or Chevron and or simply Vever in signed script.
