Jean-Baptiste Odiot  - 1822

The House of Odiot was founded in 1690 and for over three centuries the company of silversmiths has maintained it's fabulous tradition of creating masterpieces in precious metals - primarily silver and gold.  Through subsequent generations it has devoted itself to the same task, handing down a heritage of work, intelligence, honor and renown.  For five generations the firm has been silversmiths to the Kings and Queens of Europe as well as Presidents and Emperors around the world. Today the firm is ranked amongst the best silversmiths in the world.

All their items are of a rare luxury.  However, the greatest jewel of all was created in 1854 for Said Pacha, The Vice-King of Egypt who ordered a set of three thousand items, the majority of them in gold, for the concession he granted to Ferdinand de Lesseps for the construction and exploitation of the Great Canal.  The set cost nearly 2 million dollars. 

Each of These magnificent pieces in this set has both the French State's "Head of the Minerva-1" hallmark certifying a minimum of 950 sterling, and The House of Odiot hallmark. They are of extremely high quality and were manufactured during the early 1800s when some of the most elaborate and elegant French silver pieces were made.  The quality and workmanship are impossible to duplicate today and there are no monograms on any of the pieces.  The set is in EXCELLENT condition, although the exterior of the chest is a bit beat up and there is some damage to the locking mechanism. 

The Noble Family's crest is mounted on each of the pieces and it looks like the chest has had some sort of judicial Seal placed on it a one time as there are still remnants of the sealing wax on the top and side of the chest - adding to the intrigue of the set.  The set contains the following (all weights and measure approximate):

36 Dinner Forks 21.00 cm. 83 grams
