Jean.E.Puiforcat was one of the most important Silversmiths & designers of the art deco era. He belonged to a distinguised family of Parisian Goldsmiths but developed his own strict moderniste aesthic. He used the principles of the Golden Section to give his pieces perfect proportion & balance. He also combined the silver elements with rare & exotic hardstones & woods,creating a very refined & luxurious object.

J.E.Puiforcat was a founding member of the Union Artiste Moderne, Paris in 1930.Durring the Second world War he moved to Mexico where he continued to design & create his pieces incorporating influences from the Aztec & Mayan cultures. 

His pieces are rare & can be seen in most major museum collections.
