FS904 The House of Odiot remains synonymous with extraordinary talent, superb craftsmanship, and exceptional artistry as it enters its fourth century in business. Experts regard the firm's founder, Jean-Baptiste Gaspard Odiot, to be one of the finest silversmiths of all time. His grandson, Jean-Baptiste Claude, received many important commissions from Napoleon, including the sacred scepter and sword and the King of Rome's cradle. Charles Nicholas, who mastered the rocaille style, continued his father's legacy and became purveyor by appointment to King Louis-Philippe, the Royal Family of Orleans and many royal families throughout Europe.
