Boucheron Cigarette Case Sterling Silver And Gold Art Deco Signed Boucheron Business Card Case 1930s
La Maison Boucheron was founded by Frederic Boucheron. 1858 saw the opening of his first store in the Galerie de Valois, at Palais-Royal. Atelier Boucheron was created in 1866 and such was the supreme skill and artistry that La Maison Boucheron won the Gold Medal at the Exposition Universelle (1867).
In 1893, Frédéric Boucheron became the first jeweller to move to Place Vendôme. 26 Place Vendôme is still the location of the Boucheron flagship store. Boucheron is a luxury jeweller / retailer noted for some of the most extravagant creations commissioned by royalty throughout the world.
