According to the returns of the French mint authorities, the manufactures of the French silversmiths, goldsmiths and jewellers consume annually gold to the value of 13,489,720 frances, and silver to the value of 14,226,204, the total value being upwards of one million sterling. It is estimated that the labor employed upon these metals about equals the value of the raw material. Thus the annual value of the manufactures sent forth to the markets of the world by the French goldsmiths, silversmiths and jewellers, is upwards of two million pounds sterling.

GABRIEL JEAN TEXIER-PETIT (TESSIER-PETIT)

Chatéllerault, Vienne

TP - Chatéllerault, Vienne


Member blakstone wrote:

The assay office code – 81 with a pellet – is that of Chatéllerault in the département of Vienne, which was active 1824-1937. The marks here ceased usage in 1838, of course, dating your piece to 1824-1838.

The maker’s mark – TP with two pellets - is that of

Gabriel Jean Texier-Petit (also Tessier-Petit)

Born: 22 Sep 1800 [6 Nivôse an IX] Chatéllerault, Vienne, son of François Tessier, carpenter, and Elisabeth Houet
Married: 26 Oct 1822, Chatéllerault, Vienne, to Louise Virginie Petit (b. 11 Sep 1805), daughter of François Petit and Louise Gourgeois
Died: 9 Aug 1857, Chatéllerault, Vienne

He is listed as a cutler in his marriage record and the birth record of his twin daughters in 1823 (both of whom died in infancy) but he evidently left the trade at some point, as he is listed as a spice merchant on his death record.

Hope this helps!

Angée registered his first mark on 1 Apr 1834 at 11 Place Dauphine; he cancelled that mark on 30 May 1842, and registered a second, identical mark on the same day at the same address. There is no cancellation date for this second mark, but his last listing in Didot’s Commercial Annual is in 1852.

Louis Isidore Angée was born on 3 Jun 1805 in Les Authiuex-Papion, Calvados, the son Jean-Francois Angée & Francoise Ursule Jule Demont. He married in Paris, 2e arronsdissement, on 12 Apr 1834 to Jeanne Augustine Elisa Moullyot. Unfortuately, I have not found a record for his death but, as noted, he appeared to be working until at least 1852.
