Arminjon I lists this mark (LAT, with a duck and a ball above) as that of Louis Auguste Taillepied, maker of couverts (forks & spoons), 14 rue des Anglais, registered 1801, with no other information (mark 2223). Oddly, Taillepied is not listed in any of the available Paris Almanacs of the period, but Paris civil records reveal:

Marie Louis Auguste Taillepied

Born: 20 Mar 1775, Paris, son of Louis Antoine Taillepied & Marie Anne Escorbiac

Married: 28 Oct 1797 [7 Brumaire an VI], Paris, Nôtre Dame de Paris parish, to Marie Elisabeth Lainé, daughter of Pierre Jacques Lainé & Elisabeth Antoinette Marchand

BAZILE (BASILE) CHENAILLIER

Paris


Example of the work and marks of Bazile Chenaillier:

Member blakstone wrote:

Yes, both marks are that of the silver spoonmaker Bazile Chenaillier. His first mark - BC with a hummingbird above and a thrush below – was entered on 17 Feb 1807, and the second – BC with a rabbit – was entered on 31 Aug 1824. Arminjon notes that the second mark might have been his small mark, which may account for why there is no cancellation given for the first mark.

Bazile (sometimes Basile) Chenaillier was born on 13 Jun 1779 in Jouy, Yonne, the son Paul Alexis Chenaillier (ca. 1752-1814) and Jeanne Marguerite Eléonore Lorillon (b. 1753). His uncle was the silversmith Pierre Benoît Lorillon (1757-1816), and he married Anne Sophie Dehanne (ca 1786-1835), the daughter of silversmith Pierre Joseph Dehanne (ca. 1751-aft. 1808). He died on 12 Mar 1829 and his second mark (and possibly his first) was cancelled a few weeks later on 2 Apr 1829.

Four days later, Laurent Labbé entered his mark – L.L. with a rabbit – as a silver spoonmaker at the same premises, 61 rue Quincampoix, so clearly he was Chenaillier’s successor. Indeed, on 2 Jun 1831, he married Chenaillier’s widow Anne Sophie Dehanne. (The marriage record gives her profession as proprietress, so evidently she had some active interest in the firm.)

She died on 14 Oct 1835. Frustratingly, I can find no biographical information on Labbé. (Most Parisian records were destroyed during the Commune in 1870). But he probably died in or before 1852, when the business (then at 79 rue Quincampoix) was assumed by Étienne-Henri Sanoner (1824-1868). Sanoner also used the running rabbit in his mark, as did a string of successors into the 20th century: Ernest Compère (from 1868 to 1888), the widow Compère (from 1888 to 1919) and Émile Jean Baptiste Savary (from 1919).

As regards silversmiths Henri Louis Chenaillier (1811-1859) and his son Henri Nicolas Chenaillier (1841-1903), I can find no connection between them and Bazile Chenailler. Bazile was from Jouy in Yonne, and Henri Louis Chenaillier was from Souppes-sur-Loing in the Seine-et-Marne department. However, there may well be a connection between them: the two cities are close to both each other and to Paris, and both Henri Nicolas and Bazile Chenaillier were related by marriage to the Tonnelier family of silversmiths.

PS: Yes, those are bigorne marks; although they both comprise numerous insects in the design, the "patchwork" pattern of the 1819 bigornes are very different from the "zigzag" pattern of the 1838 bigornes.


Member JayT wrote:

To add to blakstone’s comprehensive information:
-The pointed bowl is a standard shape for teaspoons of the period. They are not grapefruit spoons. The pattern is called Uniplat.
-Bigorne marks were stamped as an added guarantee that the object was silver, not as a way to avoid tax fraud.


The reference for the maker’s marks is: Arminjon, V. I, no. 00478 and no. 00479, p. 85.

Member blakstone wrote:

After a little more digging, I can confirm that silversmiths Bazile Chenailler (1779-1829) and Henri Louis Chenaillier (1811-1859) are in fact uncle and nephew. Henri Louis' father, also called Henri Louis Chenaillier (1782-1853), a merchant, was Bazile's brother.
