The Boin-Taburet firm was established in 1873 by George Boin and Emile Taburet. They are credited with the revival of Louis XV Rococo style silverware in 1880s Paris. Boin-Taburet produced wares of extremely fine quality, all of which exhibit a superb attention to detail. They were awarded a Gold medal at the 1889 Exposition Universelle in Paris. Emile Taburet and Georges Boin worked together until 1900 when Georges Boin became associated with the silversmith ‘Henry’ and created the silversmiths ‘Boin and Henry’.
