Black and white picture of the first class living room in the ship Normandie which was going from Le Havre to New York

Aboard the Normandie, the ocean liner that linked Le Havre and New York, cabins were equipped with knives, forks and spoons specially designed by Jean Puiforcat in 1934. Renamed in homage to the famous steamer and engraved with the initials of the Compagnie Générale Transatlantique, this flatware with its sober, rounded design remains one of the jewels in the House's catalogue. It has even been incorporated into the collections of the French Musée des Arts Décoratifs as a symbol of the style of 1930s France.
