Following the tenure of Louis-Victor, his son Jean left an indelible mark on the history of the family House. Immersed in the wave of artistic renewal that distinguished the period between the two World Wars, he invented a revolutionary formal vocabulary that advocated matching form to function. Characterized by shapes reminiscent of architectural design, pure lines, meaningful simplicity, lack of embellishment and a tendency to mingle sterling silver and other precious materials, his austere, Art Deco-inspired style provided the foundation for contemporary Haute Orfèvrerie.

This large vase illustrates the designer-goldsmith's passion for the hypnotic reflections of light on solid silver but also the new identity that he was able to infuse into classic goldsmithing.

The perfect angles of the stepped decoration applied to the base of the volume are achieved using the “ratchet” technique. After notching the back of the metal with a milling machine, the craftsman bends the plate and thus obtains perfect right angles, so characteristic of this new creative impulse.

Absence of ornaments and faceted body.
This tea and coffee service is typical of the Art Deco style.
Jean Puiforcat, was very influenced by classical goldsmithing, recognizable by the use of facets: V-shaped cuts made on a sheet of metal in order to bend it and obtain sharp edges.
