Frédéric Boucheron
When Frédéric Boucheron opened his jewellery shop at the Place Vendôme in 1858 he was the first jeweller in the quarter; he soon gained fame for his expert knowledge of precious stones and his exquisite creations. The Maison Boucheron catered for a wealthy and properous clientele and its successes soon allowed the company to branch out to Japan, the Middle and Far East and to Moscow and London. Maison Boucheron exhibited in many international expositions such as the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial International Exhibition, the 1889 and 1900 World Exhibitions in Paris, the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair and the 1925 International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts in Paris. The management of the company - which still trades at the Place Vendôme address - remains in the hands of the family Boucheron.
Case: very good
Dial: good, oxydized
Movm.: very good, capable of running, cleaning recommended
