Tea and coffee set Louis XV or François-Thomas Germain
The enduring gestures and techniques of silversmithing
This outstanding ensemble is named after the silversmith who made the original coffee pot that inspired the complete set a couple of centuries later. Louis Victor Puiforcat, great collector of ancient silversmith pieces and owner of the coffee pot, asked the artisans in his workshop to duplicate the original piece and challenged them to imagine the other elements to form a complete set (tea pot, coffee pot, sugar bowl, etc.). He will baptize the set the “François Thomas Germain set” to pay tribute to the famous French silversmith.
