The goldsmith company “Boulenger” was founded in 1810 by M. Boulenger-Hautin and was originally named “Hautin”. Adolphe Boulenger, nephew of the founder, took over the management of the company in 1864 and gave it the name “A. Boulenger & Cie.” In 1869 and 1871 Adolphe Boulenger started a metallurgy plant at Créteil, which in 1902 employed 60 craftsmen. At his death in 1898, his son Charles Boulenger took over the business and named it “Ch. Boulenger & Cie.” Boulenger was the main supplier of silverware to the French National Marine. The firm specialized in cutlery, tea and coffee services and tableware, and obtained several prizes at universal and international fairs, for instance Paris 1925, Cairo 1929 and Antwerp 1930. This stunning tea set is a magnificent testament to the quality and luxury of the firm’s products.
